Have You Walked Today?

Monday, May 21, 2007

If you do nothing else, be sure to walk today. Start with just ten minutes...Only a block or two.

Go outside and walk! Or stay inside and walk: In a mall, or apartment building, around the halls of your house or office--anywhere!

As you walk, say a little prayer over and over again. Here are some ideas: "Holy Spirit, I am One." Or the ancient Jesus Prayer, "Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me, a sinner." Or, "Higher Power, I love you." Get into the rhythm of your steps, and line up the words with them. Then synchronize your breathing with the steps and the words.

Look around you while you walk. Look up at the trees, sky, and clouds. Look down at the ground, dirt, and stones. Look around at the flowers and shrubs...or your neighbors or coworkers!

    it was such a BEAUTIFUL day today. I ran for 2.4 miles, and spent time outside with the dog in my yard. I really enjoy taking in a good book outside until it starts to get dark. Something about the springtime air is just so refreshing!
