Come Walk with Me
I went for a walk tonight. It's funny where your mind can travel as you step. I picked berries at the side of the road, which made my mind go back to childhood berry picking with my Bep and the way Mia has picked up on this-she is a aggressive I tell you. Bep would be proud! I tasted the sweet rich flavour of black berries and the fresh tangy flavour of raspberries. There is a mulberry tree I've been keeping my eye on for a bit-the berries are barely hinting at changing color from green to deep purple yet.
I walk to the green bridge down our road and usually cross the bridge before I turn around. Tonight I didn't feel like crossing the bridge. I told myself that 'the bridge is where its at' but a raccoon was guarding the way so I relented of my pep talk and happily turned around before the bridge. I hope no one ever catches me crossing the bridge because you kind of have to bring your knees up high (like a horse trotting-great mental picture for you!) or your feet will catch the metal pattern of the bridge. So if you don't catch me trotting you'll find me tripping. ;O)
On the way home the sun is usually going down which turns my thoughts towards God and His GLORY. It's a new picture in the sky every time and my heart just overflows with praise to the one who paints it. Tonight the color was bright and more yellow than it usually is. I could hardly look at it, it was so bright. As I kept walking, it mellowed out. The color became softer like the flesh of an unripe mango that you'd hoped you could eat but discovered was not quite ready.
I meandered down the hill that takes me closer to home and could hear a motor running. It was Dan cutting the grass. 'He's a good man', I thought-always taking care of his family.
The sky was changing again by the time I made it home. The lowering light of the sun was making the clouds glow pink and bright white against the softening bright blue background of sky. It reminded me of a Robo Popsicle-I don't know why everything was reminding me of food-I really was not hungry.
Hope you enjoyed the walk!
