My day began as most of my days begin.
Second cup of coffee.
But then, instead of email or news or my list for the day, I went for a walk.
30 minutes outside.
Surrounded only by….
Trees creaking in the wind.
A woodpecker heard, but not seen.
Quiet enough for me to be aware of my own breathing.
Silence settling around my soul.
I realized I pray better walking than I do folding my hands and bowing my head.
Maybe I should begin every day like this.
