It is a night I want to stay and revel in.
The moon is full, it lights everything up. Not as the sun would, no, that's not its place. It lights up the night. It is mellow, and peaceful. It sheds light on your path. If they were standing with you, you would be able to see the face of your beloved. And how glorious, a sight, in such light, that would be.
And the crickets, oh darling, the crickets are in their glory. They sing, almost as loud as the birds do in daylight. They call you to listen to the words, of a wordless song. They ask you to leave your thoughts for a little bit and just take in their music.
The weather is there as well, not to be outdone by its companions. The weather is perfect. It's warm enough that no sweater is needed, but not so much to cause you discomfort.
All of these things call me to take a walk.
Today was lively.
I had all the emotions a person can have. My mind was not empty or void. It was not wanting in exercise. My heart was not given a rest, it was thrilled and terrified, joyful and desperate.
There are things in my life. As with any life, and in any person if you were to talk, ask and get to know.
I have things I'm delighting in, things I am hopeful and expectant in, wonderful things my heart looks on with a smile.
I have things I'm struggling with, things I am discouraged with and there are fears I am combating.
And with the joyous and the desperate things of my heart and mind, I am trying to work through. The joy and hope I am relishing. I am believing on my Lord, and He is faithful.
The fear and discouragement, I am trying to think on how to work through and on. There are no quick or easy answers. I am believing on my Jesus, He is comfort, and He is wisdom.
And in everything I am talking with My God and Savior. And I am trusting on Him for continued hope, love and peace. He is everything I need. My Jesus is the answer to all.
I ask simply for the stillness to hear, and the discernment to see where He leads, and what answers He gives.
And in this moment-with the moon, and the crickets, and the breeze-I desire nothing more than to take a walk. To answer this night's beckoning call. To walk, and not think, and just adore my Creator. To think of nothing else but the awe I feel at such a night.
I miss simple times.
I wish it were still a world where I could go, nice as I please, on a grand, long walk.
So, my thoughts...?
I need someone who loves random walks.
Someone who is absolutely in love with the Creator and is in awe of His creation.
But really loves walks to appreciate that...ones in the day, and some at night ;)
