I don't know why but a set of steps along a curb has always caught my attention. Especially ones that lead to a vacant lot. I always have to wonder about what was there that the steps led to and why that building is no longer there.
I didn't have to wonder about what happened to the building these stairs led into; it was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina.
No steps here, but still made me wonder about the house that had once been there. Now this was all that was left - two lions at the end of the sidewalk, guarding the vacant lot.
A man's heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps. Proverbs 16:9
