Reservoir Park, Southern Pines, NC

Sunday, September 05, 2010

Just wanted to let you guys know my legs are doing so much better! I went to my sister Lisa's new home in Whispering Pines, NC Friday and she showed me around the neighborhood! There are several lakes close by and this beautiful park!

Pictures are taken from the internet as I did not have a camera. It was well over 100 degrees Friday, but we managed to walk the whole distance of the lake. It was about 5 miles altogether that we walked according to my pedometer! The path was through the woods with the lake right beside us! It was such a peaceful walk with a gentle breeze blowing ever now and then making it bearable! We talked and marveled at God's emoticon work! We had walked the whole distance and my legs felt great! I think I like walking! I am thanking God for strengthening my legs!

    Hey Sis, so glad to hear your legs are improving --God is still at work! Your sis lives in a beautiful area ---I used to live not far from there in Cameron, actually worked in Vass. That part of the state is gorgeous,but of course my favorite part is the mountains of NC!

    Isn't it amazing at what God can do. A beautiful place to walk with legs that don't hurt. Woo Hoo! It's funny, I struggle here at home to get a 2 mile walk in, but at the mountains I can walk forever.

    So glad the legs are doing better. emoticon

    emoticon Five miles is a LOT!!! I've found that walking in beautiful surroundings (and what beautiful surroundings those are!) makes the time go by so fast, that I don't even realize the mileage I'm covering. But of course, if your legs hurt, it's no fun at all. Praise God for strengthening your legs! And as you lose weight and increase your physical activity, walking will probably become even more enjoyable. It becomes a "blessed" cycle!

    Howdy April!

    Looks like an awesome place and it's good great to hear that your legs are doing better!

    And what a walk! Five miles is awesome! I'm jealous - the closest body of water to me is the Missouri River and - well - it's not a beautiful sight!

    Have a good Sunday!
