Just a breath from God

Monday, July 13, 2009

I took off that dumb boot and decided to test the waters. I tried yesterday for a shorter walk and I felt ok. So I went today and took a 2.5 mile walk. I walked in the sun with the baby with my ipod on full blast and was sweating and felt strong and I felt the anger and the pain lift out of me. I dont know how many here are believers in God but I tell you it was what I call a "God Moment". The clouds parted, the sun rays shone down, the air smelled as sweet as ever, it was as perfect a moment as I could have experienced and I breathed it in and almost cried. I felt like God was taking it all from me. And boy did I need it. Today wasnt any less frustrating than yesterday and all I wanted to do was cry and that walk was therapy to me. I felt amazing. Just wanted to share that moment with my friends.

And on a side note, thank you all for being such AMAZING friends to me during all this.

    Isn't it amazing how God gives us those when we least expect it? Sometimes I picture Jesus up there in Heavn looking down at us and just giggling with delight about the suprise He has in store for us! And most of the time we walk around just oblivious!

    That was great! In the last couple of years I have come to realize that God wants to be part of my daily life. Not just in general but in each hour of the day. I am so much closer to Him now and I enjoy it so much. I see God in every thing that happens and I know He's watching me, and you too. May God bless you again. Sometimes we get so distracted by life that we don't see Him in the shadows. That's why practicing companionship with God is so good, then when something serious comes along it's just natural to look to Him.

    I love when He blesses us with those moments. They are far too rare, but when they do happen you love them that much more. We often are going to fast to see them. It is great that you can slow down enough to enjoy it. I hope there are more in store for you! :) Keep up the hard work!

    Cheryl, I am so glad that you had such a wonderful friend to take all of your burdens from you. What a beautiful day... No matter what else was going on, what a beautiful day! Let the sun shine on you! I hope you do the same tomorrow. Hang in there. Things have a way of working themselves out.

    Way to just let go and take it all in! It sounds like it was one of those experiences were you truly experience God's peace. I hope you have more days like this!

    What a blessed walk you had with Him. God only gives you what you can handle. I'm so glad he lifted some of your burden during your walk. I hope you continue to heal (both your foot and your heart).

    Take care of yourself.

    Praise God, I am so happy for you. It is so nice when we are able to see the examples of God walking with us in our life. Good job on not giving up on your goal even in the face of adversity.

    Those God moments come more often than we may realize. I'm happy you experienced one and that you're back walking. Thanks for the story. It was inspiring. Be well.

    What is it they say "Let go and Let God" sounds like you did. Glad you had a nice walk. Good luck with the foot but don't push too hard.
