Lydia gave me 5 challenges this past weekend. Here is Challenge #1:
1.) Take a long walk. If it’s cold, wear all your favorite warm clothes and favorite hiking shoes. Go by yourself. Bring along a journal and/or camera. Capture a photo or two along the way. Find a thoughtful spot. Think. Write. Smile. Be content. :)
It was an amazing time in the woods. There was tons of snow and it was deafening and beautiful. I wrote in my prayer journal for a while and just sat on a fallen tree praying and reflecting on all the crazy and confusing things in life. I realized I don’t do this enough. I may worry about them (more than) enough, but how frequently do I sit in solitude and silence with those prayers.
Later, I went back up as it was getting dark to snap off some photos with a point and shoot. Nothing spectacular but ‘twas fun nonetheless.
I was content to say the least :)
