What is it about getting outside on a warm day in January,
taking a brisk walk, and having the heat of the winter’s sun gently infuse your back,
that does a heart good?
All the more today,
as I share my path with a dear old friend.
She’s a kindred heart.
We walk, we talk, we laugh and pray.
Heading on our three-mile trek our hearts are bounding,
lungs are working,
and there isn’t a lull of silence as we share our thoughts, hopes, and fears.
The time goes fast and we can’t get all we have to say
into one blessed visit.
“As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.”
– Proverbs 27:17
We were created to enjoy friendships – to walk this path of life together.
We decide on a once a month meeting.
It does a heart good.
Plus, these shoes were meant for walking, talking, laughing, and praying.
