Basking in the warmth of her sunshine
I walked awhile with March
Dreaming of hot summer days
Until she led me through a glen
Where winds blew cold
Thru shaded trees
It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. —Charles Dickens
I don’t walk alone
The Word safely leads me
He is the Light I need
To guide my feet each day
And keep the darkness away
(Based on Psalm 119:105 and John 8:12)
Weary feet press on
Someday you will walk on gold
New Jerusalem’s street
(Based on Revelation 21:21)
A flower’s purpose
Is to seek to grow and bloom
On my walk today, when I saw this little purple petunia in bloom, looking so pretty and strong though growing all alone in an obscure place, I had to stop to admire it.
It wasn’t in a big beautiful garden. It didn’t have ideal soil and light, but it still grew and bloomed.
And whether anyone else noticed it there in its little corner of the world, didn’t really matter, because it did what it was supposed to do. It fulfilled its purpose. And in doing so, it inspired me.
This made me think about my life, my purpose, my growth, and it was good food for thought as my tummy made hungry sounds causing my feet to make their way towards home as the sun begun to set on another Summer day.
Knowing your purpose
Seeking to ways to fulfill
Leads to accomplishment
“And carry a big stick”
On my walk today I met a gentleman who, in actuality, was walking with a big stick.
As we passed by one another and nodded a greeting, I spoke the quote to him and he smiled. “ Teddy Roosevelt” he said.
“ Oh, I thought it was Snoopy!” I said laughing.
When I got home a Google search proved the stick walker was right!
Guess I got my history lesson for the day!
Plus, a poem inspiration. 😊
