I Needed That !
I can't remember how long before today that it's been since I got outside and walked! Way too long for sure! I just kept telling myself that "I don't have time today". My todays kept turning into weeks and then into months.
This morning when I woke up I determined that I was going to try my best to get dressed right away and walk at least one mile. And I am so glad I did! I needed that!
As I walked in the cool of the morning in the shaded driveway with our dog Blackie at my side, I began to feel myself unwinding. I began to hear the birds singing. I began to notice the beauty on every side that I so often take for granted.
Then I hear a soft whispering sound. At first it caught me off guard and then I realized it was the wind in the top of the trees. It was almost as if God was whispering to me or "shushing" me like a mother does to her whimpering child. I felt His peace. It made me smile as I looked up through the tops of the tall trees into the blue heavens above. I softly told God "Thank You" for taking time to speak to me in such a special way this morning.
Have you taken time to let God speak to you lately?
God bless you!
