A Thanksgiving Walk

The sky is Colorado-blue; the air crisp; the breezes gently capture the golden Aspen leaves and escort them to the ground; they skip across the road barely connecting with the surface—the perfect fall day.

My pace quickens on the downhill slope. Maggie, our Golden Retriever, enjoys the walk too, and trots contently by my side. As the slight wind caresses my face, and the aromas of this day delight my senses, I smile, I relax, I enjoy.

Thanksgiving invites thankfulness. The list forms in my mind around questions:
·        What am I observing?
·        How do my observations picture God’s character?
·        How is God’s character speaking to my current circumstances?

The anxieties of my life melt; the fears evaporate; the unknowns are livable. God reality seen from God perspective makes all the difference—at least for today. I promise myself I will take more walks.

“give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you”.
I Thessalonians 5:18.
