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!

This is so precious! I needed that too...to read this today. Our Abba Father is ever so mindful of us and I'm so thankful and so humbled by His love.

Love you!

Great Blog! I wish I could be still and hear God. I know that I need that. I love the outdoors but since I can't walk but a few minutes I don't get out much. God is good though. He has brought me through so much and I thank Him every day. Thanks for this blog. It hit the spot.

A good walk is a healing grace to me, each time I partake. Honestly, I'm a much better/happier person after being outdoors. It's cleansing. Glad you had yours; glad to see you back writing.
