It's a Beautiful Day!
If you live in Eastern SD, have you been outside today?
Oh, my word.
It's SO beautiful and absolutely the picture perfect vision of what a lovely fall day should be. There's some sun, wind, crispness of changing seasons, gorgeous leaves rustling around on the ground and in the trees, and a perfect blue sky.
This morning I went for a walk.
All by myself.
I truly and honestly don't remember the last time I did that. It was glorious, and fuel for my soul that was much needed.
Since I'm pretty late in my pregnancy, my emotions are going wild. Imagine that. There's nothing like waiting for "the time" when you get to welcome your sweet precious baby into the world, is there? It really is a beautiful time, if not challenging.
Going for a walk all by myself was a way to release and re-group my emotions. The fresh, crisp air did wonders for me, and just taking in God's beautiful creation was enough to really help me chill out and remember what a sacred and special time this end-of-pregnancy is.
So, Good Lord willing, there will be beautiful fall days throughout the rest of my pregnancy, and I'll be able to take lots more mind-clearing and emotion-lifting time to myself and spend it in fellowship with my sweet Jellybean and Creator.
And if not, it'll be ok. I know that I know that I know, that I certainly won't be pregnant forever, and this sweet baby will come when he/she is good and ready. God is in control!
If you need to be uplifted for any reason - late in pregnancy, early in pregnancy, kids bugging you, spouse bugging you, financial things to figure out, car issues, work difficulties, grief. Whatever may possibly be going on in your life, a little time outside in this gorgeous weather may be just exactly what you need. It sure did wonders for me today.
Much love to you, wherever you are in your journey
