(Advent)ures Day 20: Miles to Go

There are few things as life-giving to the body and soul as a walk through the woods.  I encourage you to find some time today, or this weekend, to have a wee dander in wildness and see the sun filtered through old trees.  It will remind you of your place in the order of things, and remind you that, though sometimes the world around us spins and frets this way and that, the life of green things goes on.  It’s a peaceful thought, that.  So, go take a walk of your own today, if you’re able, but in the meantime, here’s a snapshot of a recent walk of mine.

Happy travels, my friends.  Let your feet tell you where the rest of you wants to go, and trust God to show you how to get there.
