Today I took a walk.
I heard the crickets chirping, children laughing together at the neighbor's house, the wind rustling through the corn.
I saw two horses grazing in the pasture, swishing flies away with their tails. I saw a grassy lane and butterflies dancing in the gentle breeze.
It was so peaceful.
Sometimes we are so busy that we don't take the time to just sit and "be still" and "listen." I haven't been lately. I feel like I am so busy, but then at the end of the day I ask myself, "Did I really accomplish anything today?" I waste a lot of my time on the computer playing games, looking at blogs, or browsing Pinterest when I could be doing so many important things like reading my Bible or accomplishing projects.
So, today, I decided to get away from the computer and get some fresh air and enjoying God's beautiful creation. I am so glad I did! It was so relaxing + refreshing! It was a perfectly gorgeous fall day!
Please pray for me as I try to use my time wisely and honor God with my days.

Are you struggling with something similar? If so, get away from whatever it is that is wasting your precious time -- go outside. take a walk. meditate in His Word. Ask Jesus for help in whatever you are struggling with. If you care to share, I'd love to hear about it so I can pray for you!

This is the day. This is the day that the Lord hath made, that the Lord hath made. We will rejoice. We will rejoice and be glad in it. And be glad in it! This is the day that the Lord hath made! We will rejoice and be glad in it! This is the day. This is the day that the LORD hath made.
PSALM 37:4 + 5
Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy ways unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
