It's been a while...
Yesterday I was able to go for a longer walk. I had not been able to walk over the last month, due to physical pain it was a challenge to move around at all. No pain anymore. Praise God.
Learnt some things as I was just laying there in bed and needing to go to the bathroom. Most of the time, as I struggled to slowly move from the laying position to upright.. to standing, then walking those few steps. I was speaking these words out. "when I am weak, He is strong" and " I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me". I could walk those few steps. Praise to You my God. Thankyou for showing me this.
So that brings me to yesterday. I went walking with my sister in that beautiful historical town and then along a narrow looking road /lane just outside of the town.
This lane has open pasture farmland on both sides of it. As we walked along it we saw cows. Two groups of them. They were standing in a closed circle munching on a bale of hay. They looked like they were having a meeting. My sister made a comment " the meeting of the cows at the round table". It was funny. I have an excellent imagination and that is what it looked like to me. Taken from a book, I think that round table bit??
The air had that farm smell waffling around. We walked a while along this open pasture lane/Road. Walked until we saw sheds. Then it looked like someone's property.. as the lane turned to a muddy dirt lane from a tarred lane. So we turned around and headed back.
When we got to the town itself, we walked past buildings and shops. One such building has a large wide old fashioned front door. I love this timber door. It has a brass knob in the middle of the door. Above that is a door knocker thing. And just below the knob is an opening slot for mail etc. I imagine the door would be heavy to open as it just looked it. Strong and well made.
I could smell other scents waffling around now, some from the cafes and hotel. It was around dinner time as we walked through this section of the town. So dinner aromas...
It was great to catch up with my sister again.. It had been a while too. I did enjoy this walk. And it felt good to move again, outside.
