Some people may be disturbed by a daily walk that includes headstones, but my children and I always enjoy the flowers, birds, and wildlife we see there. This morning, hand in hand the three of us walked. We praised God out-loud for protecting Lydia and for helping her heal. The praise soon turned into Micah and Lydia talking about how dumb concussions are, but I didn't mind. I felt the same way. The weekend had been full of turmoil. Testing, waiting, pain, doctors, and vomiting, followed by more vomiting. Once Lydia had been on the mend, I was struck with a migraine (I'm guessing caused by stress) that caused me to sleep from one in the afternoon until 6:23 this morning. Oh, except when my migraine caused me to throw up too. So, the walk, the peace of the outdoors in the morning was just what my heart needed. Calm, serenity, and refreshment.
Maybe your heart is troubled? Perhaps you feel overwhelmed? Maybe you just feel like you have too much to do. I encourage you, lace up your sneakers, and head outside. A quick ten minute walk---especially one where you talk to God---can do wonders for your soul.
