On Down the Road

I decide to go walk with my daughter.

I decide not to helicopter my spouse.

I decided his choices are his.

I decided to stay close to God.

I decided to walk with my daughter rather than police my spousal rights.

I decided to pray and let God work.

I decided policing him has been policing me.

I decided to be free.

I decided God avenge all wrongs against me.

I decided not to myself.

I decided to go walk with my daughter.

I decided right for her is my greater right.

I decided.

It is beautiful.

It is peace and joy from God.

I am free.

Free is beautiful.❤

Humble Walk in Pride Central

Self-absorption is our greatest problem as a society, in our churches, in our government, everywhere. It is the dark side of pride. Walking humbly amidst throngs of self-absorbed people is like a meek, little kitten walking across the road of racing lions. And yet, we are told by God to be humble. And truly, we cannot pray effectively without being humble. Sometimes walking with God is very much like walking quietly against the flow of a roaring crowd. And I’m ok with that because Jesus always holds my hand and walks with me. ❤

Good Walk

It has been a week of sickness and rainy cold weather so I have not had my walky talky (prayer walk) for that long. I got to walk this morning and although it was cold, I treasured each step. It starts my mind out right to have prayer time alone with God and invigorates my body to walk, gets my lungs clear and heart pumping. So I am very thankful for a good walk and look forward to getting back to walking regularly. It helps. Not much helps as much as that. ❤

The Road is Real, the Journey Deep

No matter what else is going on, how great is the truth of the road! The journey may be in circles but movement begats healing and truth is what moves me. On the road, in step with my prayers to Almighty God who made everything I look at, there is a vivid truth reality which propels me toward the better. Peace and joy flood in through the steps from the road through my shoe into my soul. God reminds me again I am not alone in this world. He is with me on the journey. I walk on.❤

I Walk Along

I walk along the path during the sunrise.

The heat is not yet a struggle.

The birds sing and find food, the butterflies also

The wind wafts in waves over my skin.

Not entirely awake, I move one step in front of the other

With each, my eyes open more

And I am struck with the immense beauty

The calm and noise balance luxuriously.

I realize God is already up for He never sleeps

I say good morning and He does too in heart and nature.

His gentleness does not offend in the early hours.

God’s presence is always a delight.

How rich my walk when He is there. 

And He is always there.❤❤❤

Sitting by the Lake

I am currently sitting by Lake Hollingsworth. As I sit here looking at the water and sunrise and feel the fence breeze and see the flags blowing regally about, it struck me why people pay so much extra to live on a lake. And having dropped my son off to serve and as I wait for the Warriors Walk to begin around the lake, I feel blessed to be here, to be alive, to have been blessed by our servicemen/women who fought off intruders upon freedom so we may enjoy ours as lived sit out here enjoying the lake in the open, not crouching in fear. We stand tall and free because they did first. We have courage and opportunity because they used theirs for us. And there could not be as lived more perfect day to ho n or them, honor life, honor courage, honor freedom. Great walk to honor our great men and women who served and serve us all. Thank you, God, for our freedom. Thank you, God, for our soldiers. God bless us all! ❤

Walking with God

I walk in the mornings again, back to my normal routine. And while I walk, I have time to contemplate life. This morning I simply walked with God. I worshiped, I chatted, I appreciated, and it makes me very joyful to spend one on one time with my Maker/Heavenly Father. I know He knows every tiny detail of my life and heart and has chosen to love me anyway. Other people care about me, a few even love me and that is so beautiful, but I doubt even the greatest person on earth could still love me knowing every detail of my life and heart. At least one thing would be off putting or they would run screaming into the hills. Well, maybe not that bad lol. But it is a beautiful thing to know and speak with God who made us all and tells me in His Bible that He is my Heavenly Father and loves me not matter what. Who loves like that? Think about it because He loves you like that. Of course He wants us to humbly obey because His holiness demands justice but we do our best and pray and ask forgiveness and He forgives AND forgets. Amazing! God is soooooo good! I love Him. I would encourage you to take a walk or sit a spell with God today and find a time to do it every day. He blesses and rewards such obedience.
