Morning Musing

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

I am so enjoying my morning walk. It is a feast for the eyes and a renewing of the spirit for me.
Today as I walked I noticed the foliage was turning red and gold and mixing with still green leaves. I admired drooping willow trees and late blooming flowers and I looked with interest at the neighboring yards. I watched squirrels playing on a porch, one was hanging upside down from a bird feeder. Two smal l deer crossed my path today.

I said many hellos to people walking and jogging and riding bikes. I stopped to take in a clump of cedar and a fat yellow cat. I noticed two doves cooing at each other in front of a small white house.
I thought about what my 10 year old said as she handed me a piece of bark. "Mom, I know God made the trees."
"Why?" I asked.
She showed me the underside of the bark and said,"Just look at that pretty pattern. God must have designed that. Trees make me think of God."
Once again I was amazed at what I had birthed and I thought that only God could design something as precious as my beautiful daughter. I certainly didn't make her by myself. Why, I can barely draw stick figures.

I continued musing and walking and pretty soon I had gone about three miles. I found two wild baby kitten in the woods.

Enjoy the day Sparkies emoticon

    This entry cheered me up a lot and I was in a good mood anyway! I'm jealous you live in such a lovely area. You have to go a little ways out to get to any sort of countryside where I live unfortunately.. All of the pictures are gorgeous! I think this is just what I needed to read today :)
    RYN: I haven't got a wii! My sister in law swears by it and she's lost about 20 pounds so far doing the dancey sort of game and the personal trainer one. I've been meaning to save up for one because I've heard nothing but good things and for when the weather is rubbish :P
    Hope the rest of your day is just as awesome~

    What a wonderful blog!! It sounds like your morning walks are full of adventure. I am so pleased that you are not so rushed to get it done that you are missing all of these wonderful things. Think of how many people focused on other things rather than the moment are missing out on these offerings!

    Have a great nights sleep and another beautiful walk where you are present and in the moment!
