Around six o'clock a.m., four or five days a week,
I begin my early morning walk.
Sometimes it is dawn and I can barely see;
Most times it is bright and I have a clear view;
In my spirit there is a sense of wonder and the
awareness that each morning is a new morning.
Oftentimes I am greeted by the moon, scurrying
squirrels gracefully dancing; deer grazing, gazing
and eyeing me to see if I am a friend or foe, or
singing birds that cause me to sing, if for no other
reason than to let them know that I appreciate their singing.
Sometimes people passing in cars toot their horns
to say "Hello," "I love you" or "Thank you for
My three to four mile early morning walk is a
sanctuary that affords me with delights that are not available at any time other than early in the morning.
As I walk I am aware that "Presence with a capital "P" is guiding me each step I take. And even though I walk by myself I do not walk alone.
Returning to my abode, after at least an hour's walk, I am invigorated, joyful and conscious that my health is enhanced because I took an early morning walk.
I feel confident that the rest of my day will be beautiful because I took an early morning walk.
