Hi! Thanks for dropping in to Pathways of the Heart.

Join me as we explore the various pathways we take when we follow our hearts. Sometimes those paths lead us into dangerous situations. Other times we find romance and happy endings. But all of us are following some path.

How do we know which way to go? Can we always trust our hearts, which can be easily swayed by emotions? Or is there direction from another, more reliable source?

One of the reasons I like lighthouses is because they represent so many symbols we need as we follow life’s journey. They provide direction, hope, and guidance for ships seeking safe harbor and warnings to keep them out of danger. In the same way, we need illumination to show us which path to take.

Come along with me as we discover what happens as we follow the pathways of our hearts!
