Pictures From Our Walk

In my last post I took a stab at an experiment with exhortation. So far I've had no takers on comments. I was asking for people to comment on one thing that they have prayed about and feel is beneficial to stop and "make happen". You know, one of those "I've really got to do that" things.

Well I took that walk. Not a very big deal, I guess. It was a big deal for me. I had wanted to stop and breathe in this little part of creation around me instead of just driving through it. I wanted to let my sweet girl look at the wonders of trees , flowers, and a bright sun. We spend some time outside, but this was intentional. I wanted to get those walking muscles going again. I prayed and this I believe was beneficial. I listened to my Ipod part of the way. I was singing My God's Enough and Never Alone by Barlow Girl and Agnus Dei by Third Day.
I certainly don't want us all to be bogged down by our little lists nor do I think that we have to cross off all of the things on that list. I just think that there are certain things that we, especially those of us that seem to procrastinate, should "make happen". Even this Stay At Home Mom of two kids, one in school, is pretty busy, but I want to intentionally ask God to show me the things that I should "make happen" and free me from those things that are unnecessary.



Here are a few pictures from our walk:

I loved the way these trees looked against the fence.

Thanks Andi and J for your comments. Thanks for your encouragement. I have prayed for both of you in general and specifically about pilates and special time with MW.

This is a very impressive Blog. It's obvious that a true person of integrity and intelligence created it, which would exclude any help from Bill (HA!). Keep up the good work!
