Just Take a Walk

Yesterday, was a good day, but I just plain needed a break by the end of it. Sometimes it is hard for me to admit that I need a break, but the Lord made us in a way that we do need rest and refreshment at excellent time just to reflect on Him. Well, I was tired and getting grumpy so after dinner I just asked Brian if he minded if I took a walk..(of course he would not mind but it is nice to ask). It was freezing outside (to me), but I just bundled up and determined that I needed this time to be away from the house, kids etc. Brian let me use his diskman (is that what it's called?), I popped in the new worship cd my mom sent for Brian and set out. It was a very brisk 30 min walk, but wow what a difference it made. I just listened to the music and prayed and walked as fast as I comfortably could. When I returned, my hands and ears were like ice, but my heart was warmed by the ministering of the Holy Spirit. It was a very special time- no distractions, just me, a song, and my Lord. I was refreshed...I need to follow the Lord's leading more often, and take a break and just enjoy Him. It benefits the whole family!
