i took a walk today

I took a walk today, to find my faith, and put distance between me and my troubles, and look for God, because I could not find him in the house this morning.

A fountain gurgled and I heard him say I am near.
Chimes tinkled and I heard him say I am near.
A scrub jay screeched at me,
a butterfly rested on a fence covered in a riot of purple morning glory,
a man holding a baby in his front yard smiled and waved baby's hand back at me,
and a pear tree, heavy with green and crimson fruit, reminded Fall is on its way.

I found what I was looking for.

I huffed and puffed up the hill,
grateful for every breath,
grateful for every breath,
sweat dripped from my forehead,
tears rolled down my cheeks,
peace flooded my body.

I am near.
I am near.
I am near Debbie.

I took a walk to find my faith today,
so I could walk in faith.

I need to get the heck out of my house & find Him so I can find me.

Hugs & love,
