I thank you for these bricks. Lord, it has held me while I walked back and forth. I and many others have paced over these bricks in thoughts too deep for words. We stood upon this brick for weddings and graduations. Grandmas, grandpas, and uncles, and aunts were taken from here to eternity over these bricks. Life has been lived and died in and over these bricks. I am grateful for these bricks. They do what I cannot seem to do, testify in rain and shine or wind and hail to the permanent impermanence of the life you call us to lead. For the obvious path beneath my feet, I am forever grateful.
