Out in the Morning

Do you have a quiet place you go to when you need to talk to the Lord?

I have a few, but my favorite place requires just one thing... running shoes.

I headed out this morning, with so much on my heart to talk to the Lord about.

I'd been meaning to take my camera on a run for several weeks now, and finally remembered this morning...wanted to capture His incredible creation as I spent time with Him.

Headed out to the little airfield near leads to my favorite spot to just sit, pray, and be quiet.


After running hard, even some sprints (helps clear my head), I sat down in my favorite spot...some old cement blocks at the end of the airfield.

That view never gets old!!! I stayed for quite a while today - releasing all that was on my heart. Even sang out loud since no on was around to hear me!

Except for this deer I encountered just a few minutes later as I left to head for home! He was literally standing five feet from me, staring me in the eyes on the side of the startled me!

I grabbed my camera but was too late to get him right in front of me as he bounded off. I don't know who was more startled...him or me!

Literally took some time to stop and smell the roses lilacs on the way home. One of my favorite scents of all time.

One last stretch of road...

Before home.

So thankful for that sweet, quiet time with the Lord today. Been a good day ever since.


  1. I'm glad you've taught me how to enjoy moments like these! :) I love where we live!

  2. Awesome that you can run and pray at the same time.

  3. But I love this place too! So, so green. That's what I always think in the warmer seasons!
