Traveler

“I am a traveler passing through the earth, as all my fathers were”  Psalm 39:12

We are all travelers on a journey.  May we each make the most of our life’s journey by returning to the childlike enthusiasm of doing new things, meeting new people ~ to be free again ~ to run barefoot in the grass. 

Let us open our minds once again to the curiosity of God’s creation, experiencing the blessings that God so generously gives us.

  2. Inspiring post my friend . Thank you for the generous award. Such an honor and a joy. Yes, we are all transient travelers in this lifetime. Thank for the reminder because honestly sometimes I do forget when I get so caught up with worldy problems. Beautiful, “Let us open our minds once again to the curiosity of God’s creation, experiencing the blessings that God so generously gives us. ” God bless.

    • These days it seems it easy to caught up with worldly problems and we all need to be reminded to be like children again…I know I did! 😉 My neighbors may think me nuts when they see me running barefoot in the grass!! Blessings – Patty

  3. So appreciated your post today, watching my 9 yr old and her friends making ‘medicine’ from dead flowers and mud (?!) They resonated with me ok!

    I love this one! Reminds me of an old song, “I am a pilgrim”– I found Doc Watson singing it on YouTube if you want to have a listen. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=tv4NhPyFFj0

    • Yea – glad you did it – I have been wanting to do that for a long time, but we have 4 dogs so I will have to get my DH out there like a mine sweeper and sweep the area of …uh..you know…little gifts from the poops! (we call our dogs “poops” instead of “peeps” the slang for your friends, I assume was short for your people….and it fit too if you get my meaning!!) LOL Anyway I have been day dreaming while watching the clouds float by and letting my imagination soar.
