Thinking and Walking




Walking by myself helps me sort my thoughts, calm my body and settle my heart.
 Late this afternoon I took the opportunity for this treat.




In a few short hours it will be September 11,  a time for reflection and also a family birthday to celebrate.




I'm very glad my trust is God whose love and faithfulness never change, from generation to generation,
 from century to century, despite what may happen in the world around me.




"You made the moon to mark the season
and the sun that knows when to set."
                                                     
                                                       Psalm 104:19

Beautiful...yes and amen...and you have learned one of the most important things for a home school mom...walking and just soaking in the Lord and His beauty...He refreshes, encourages and keeps us looking up to Him....as I placed my flag out today...I remember 9/11!!

Wow, you got some nice detail in that moon shot. I just haven't been able to perfect shooting the moon yet.

Marius Barbu said...

I like the sun and the light!

Liz said...

What a lovely walk!
I too find the the peace & solace of walking alone very therapeutic in many ways. I don't often get the chance to do this - I think I need to make the time again.
Thinking, praying, listening... and capturing God's beauty.

kelli said...

that moon is incredible. beautiful!
you have some gorgeous flower shots throughout your blog as well (I'm dying to get out and garden and now I'm that much more inspired!)
thanks for your comment last week -the Creative Peace post- it is so nice to "meet" you:)
and now I believe I will keep your page open so the birds can sing to me as I edit photos...

Wonderful photos. And yes, walking has the same meditative effect on me. It's one of the nicest things to do and by walking, you can find real treasures. Like you did ... Nature is so inspiring, magical and relaxing ... And the sun and the moon have this kind of special power to enlighten our body and soul ... It's a real delight to be alive!

Carletta said...
