Galatians 5:25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. (NIV)

Walking is good for me.

 It’s good for my body and my soul.

 With a clear mind, and ears hearing the smallest bird that sings,

my legs are strengthening as I increase the distance.

The wild turkeys hide from me.

While combing the neighborhood through which I walk,

they quickly disappear

when hearing

my approaching footsteps.

The little bird whose voice is heard from the tallest tree, cannot be seen among the leaves.  

Yet, his song is loud and clear.

 His song belies his size.

My mind is active as I walk and

ponder unsolved problems.  

Bits of conversation and

snippets of once learned lyrics

skip through my thoughts.

I feel alive and in step with the Spirit.

Prayer:  Lord, let me walk with you

every day of my life.
