as i was coming back from my long morning walk. (i alternate days..long one, short the next) i was looking at the beautiful scenery. one of these mornings i'm going to remember the camera so all can see what i'm talking about when i say i live in god's country. the sun was up, the trees are changing and the breeze was awesome. the fall flowers are in bloom and the colors are something to behold. but i had a moment of wonder. why would anyone doubt the lord. when you see a flower more beautiful growing on the side of the road then any in your tended bed, when the leaves turn at just the right time of year. smells, the sights. we have magnolia trees growning wild and they are a sight to behold in the spring. i have to stop and ask the age old question why is the sky blue and the grass green? we don't know, we may never know. but that is the glory of faith. i have faith. i often wonder why i don't just take the easy way out of any situration. i pray, i growl, i worry. and in the end it seems to work itself out. i have figured this out this morning while i was confercing with the lord, i walk on faith. i know that deep down all will be as it should and i have no way of changing any outcome.
i give this piece of insight because here on sp we walk on faith with ourselves daily. without it we wouldn't be where we are. we don't really know where we are going or how we are going to really get there. we have the general tools we need, but we really walk on faith. our own and the lords. i hope that i haven't offended any with my thoughts on the lord. he is my savior and my best friend. i can call on him when i'm up, down, or just somewhere in between. and may i say i do that sometimes more than i would like. i know he doesn't mind and when times are too much i ask for his help to carry me along. he is guiding my steps this day and i hope for many more. after all he saw fit to wake me up this morning.
so to all i say god bless. maybe what this world needs is a bit more prayer, faith, and love. with all that we have the recipe for a wonder life. so again i say walk on faith and you will see where it gets you in the end......i say very far. michelle.
