Walking ... with a camera

I can't believe I went out walking again today, even earlier than yesterday!

And this time I took my camera with me... people smiled as they saw me take pictures of flowers. I wondered what they were thinking!

The air was fresher this morning and there was a particular crispness to it. I love the autumn freshness on my face as I walk into its welcoming arms.

I cleared my mind and as I walked on, I prayed...for my family, my friends, my on-line friends and particularly those who have asked for prayers. I thought of those who have no one to pray for them.

I found so many flowers, trees and foliage I wanted to capture on camera and I must have taken at least twenty pictures. I will try and share some with you each day this week.

On my way I met a relative who incidentally I had not met in several years and he told me he too had just started walking again. I saw several other 'walkers', people cleaning their front patio, watering their gardens, others leaving for work...and on I walked, with each step feeling more energized.
Before I knew it, I had done my usual route and decided to increase it a little so I walked through a couple of side streets until I came to our Chapel. There and then I decided to enter and spent a few minutes in silence in thanks and praise for this lovely morning walk.

I walked
I prayed
My thoughts I weighed,
I walked
I gazed
Some words I phrased.
I walked
I dreamed
Oh delicious time!
My heart in flight...
at this autumn beauty
so sublime.

    Thanks also for your prayers, we all need them : )
