Walking Is a Great Pastime!

When I was a kid, my mom and I would go for walks often. There is a paved road that makes a circle at our local park, and often we would walk that road. I really enjoyed doing that. I would walk on the very edge of the road. I would look down at that line that the edge of the pavement makes up against the dirt or the grass, and just keep following it and not even realize how far I have walked.

Or sometimes I will look around when I walk, especially if there are trees nearby because I like looking into the depths of a forest.

Mom and I had our best talks during our walks, and I still find it a fun activity to do when I just want to talk to someone for a while. I also like to walk as a way of relieving stress. If I am having a bad day at work then I will use my lunch hour to take a walk around the nearby lake and then I will feel so much better.

And these days I also really enjoy taking long walks through the state parks so that I may enjoy the creation that God has made. I praise Him for the things He has done, and I am reminded of the great things to come.
