Walking in the Rain
It is a rainy day in the neighborhood but that didn't stop me from doing something that I do each day...walking! I just pulled out my Wally-World umbrella and off I went. I have done this daily for a number of years (even when I worked, I would get up at 5:30 and off I would go) and it is one of my biggest daily BLESSINGS! Yes, it is great exercise and I do need that but it goes a lot deeper than that. This is my time to communicate with God, enjoy His beautiful world, and sort things out as I start my day. As I go down the mountain, I thank God for all of my blessings and the wonderful things going on in my life, and then when I come back up the mountain, I seek His wisdom and ask Him to be in charge of my day, going with me each step of the way. This seems like a one way conversation and it is, in that He doesn"t communicate with me the way you would. I can't hear His words spoken to me out loud but I do know that He is listening and that my life is BLESSED by starting my day this way.
