As the weather warms and the sun is out more than it's hidden, our neighborhood and community comes to life again. I think living in a cold and snowy area causes us to hibernate like the animals or go dormant like some of the plants. I've seen more of my neighbors in the past two weeks than I have in six months, we love it.
Another positive to the Spring and warmth is the ability to take a walk with my family, without worrying about dodging a snow plow or someone sliding into you when they try to get around you. Last weekend, Mags and I enjoyed a walk.
During the walk we enjoyed riveting conversation about teen issues and how they are similar and different than when I was a teen. We took pictures of flowers for an upcoming surprise and project. We even got a little silly, well I was the silly one. She was the embarrassed one, wishing there was somewhere to hide.
Seriously though, when I saw the above photo that Mags took while we walked, I thought of this verse from Deuteronomy. We are never alone. God goes with us and will NEVER leave us, we leave Him. It was a powerful reminder.
When is the last time you enjoyed a healthy bout of exercise and laughter with the ones you love? What's stopping you?
