I was on my way to the airport in the early morning to pick up my son. He lives so very far away and I was so excited! I was focused and committed to getting there in time and hugging him.
However, along my route, I passed this lovely morning scene. I told myself I must not miss the opportunity to capture such beauty. So many times I have driven on by because it was inconvenient to stop or I was just wanting to get to my destination.
I am so glad I backed up for this one. And I also made it to the airport in time.
I am so blessed to have such a beautiful walking route. I can’t help but praise God for what I see. And I am thankful to have a camera to capture this Tennessee Beauty.
The cows came trotting to the fence when I stopped to greet them. They are so friendly!
I sang to them! “I’m glad to see you, I’m glad to see you, how are you today? I’m glad to see you, I’m glad to see you this happy sunny day!”
Wow! I know the scenery, trees and exercise are good for my brain health.
1 Corinthians 15: 51-55
Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.”
“O Death, where is your sting?
O Hades, where is your victory?”
1 Thessalonians 4:15-18
For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words.
Sunday morning walks are my favorite. They are quiet with very little or no traffic. Today, only one car passed. Last Sunday, I was a bit startled when a jogger came up from behind, but he apologized as he passed, saying that he did not have a horn.
I think I walked over five miles today.
Last week I came across this poetic testimony while on a morning walk. I like the person’s idea of a short testimony plus an appeal. I also like the creative method of sharing.
I am happy that God can change us for the better/happier/holier and give us hope.
Ephesians 3:20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, 21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
