a walk in the snow
it is truly amazing how much good you can find in moments.
in moments that are forced upon you by the design of nature.
after experiencing a long night and a late morning of walking in the quiet frosting snow I have been gracefully reminded of just how beautiful 'creation' is.
the wonders of how my eyes take in the light.
the peaceful feeling of being thankful, joyous, and content - amongst the stress and anxiety of city living.
the way my dog fights to be known as either a watchful and poised wolf sniffing and protecting or a playful puppy prancing amongst the untouched white blankets.
the mystery I am engaged to be a part as I allow myself to dream about love, my future, and the complexities of being vulnerable & human.
the miracle of breathing, bleeding, and touch.
the excitement of choice, risk, faith, and destiny.
the passion behind a winter kiss.
the dance of children as a snow man comes to life.
the unspoken music of all who share this magical snow storm.
God - Friend,
-Thank you for your natural wonders.
-Thank you for how you meet us in moments.
-Bring us life.
-Bring us love.
-Bring us out of ourselves.
-Take our hands.
-Take our hearts.
-Take our dirty feet.
-Cleanse our mind.
-Cleanse our dreams.
-Help us understand grace.
-Help us find freedom.
-Help us trust in you.
-Lead our fight to forgive.
-Lead our desire to be known.
-Lead our hopes for letting go.
-Thank you for loving us.
-Thank you for allowing us all into the conversation.
