A Nice, Refreshing Walk

I try to keep my posting to only Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays here for two reasons: one being I don’t want to get burned out, the second being that it takes a lot of time to write and promote new posts! I set aside my own rules today and decided to go ahead and put up a new post on a Thursday. {Gasp!}

It seems as though my little man has been bit by the teething monster this week. Lots of drool, lots of chewing, and, of course, lots of tears. Not necessarily from both of us, but almost. After several days of this, this morning I decided enough was enough! We were going to go on a nice leisurely walk and enjoy the beautiful weather we’ve been given.

Let me just tell you – it was the best decision I’ve made all week.

That walk did us both so much good. We strolled down our gravel road and didn’t see a single car or person during our hour long walk. We got to the creek, the place we where we generally always turn around, and it was rolling because of all the rainfall we’ve had. LB seemed to love the noise because he sat right up in stroller and looked out at the water. Since he’s had a rough week, it was great to see such a pleased look on his face. 🙂

Notice the chewing?

As we began our walk back, I couldn’t help but think about how beautiful our world is. The sky was a beautiful blue and the grass was so green. I loved seeing wildflowers growing in the ditch and leaves starting to turn a bright red. I know there have to be some major perks to living in a city, but I’ve always lived in the country and I wouldn’t want it any other way.

An added perk. 🙂
If your week has been a little trying, I hope you are able to slow down and enjoy the little things in life. I hope you are able to find joy in the changing seasons, the blue sky, and the colorful leaves. I also want to leave you with this thought – If God created the world to be this beautiful, think of how beautiful heaven must be!
