A summer morning walk

Come along and walk with me!  I’m trying to get back in shape.  A 15-minute walking mile is my goal.  Two miles in 30 minutes with a short warm-up and cool-down added on.  40 minutes or less and done!  So, I start early, before the heat and humidity build too much.

I like to think about the blessings of my life as I walk and also pray for the many that have requests.  Sort of a walking devotional time.  The first mile passes quickly.

I fly past a wheat field.  I love wheat fields.


At the one mile mark, I turn to start back home.  It’s a beautiful stretch of road I walk on.  Then, there is this hill:

Walk Hill

I don’t really love the hill.  I notice the sound of a train in the distance.  Oh.  Wait.  That is actually my breathing as I chug up the hill.

Made it!

There is a nice rustle of a breeze.  Oh. Wait.  That is actually the sound of my shorts rubbing together between my thighs.

dab fling the sweat off my brow.  Why-oh-why can’t I perspire or “dew” like a sweet, southern belle?

Whew.  Almost home.


Then, time to get out of these sweaty, walking clothes and put on grubby clothes to do chores.

It’s a glamorous life.

    I, too, (attempt to) walk every morning. I’ll have to measure my distance exactly. I try to walk 30 minutes. And I use it as a time for meditation too. I LOVE that time of day!

    I don’t seem to “dew” either.

    I love a nice prayer walk, surrounded by this glorious creation. Will have to get up earlier, though, it gets hot in a hurry. Had to laugh at the sound of the train. I was hearing that lone whistle off in the distance. LOL
