Today is especially warm. So, I walked the loop, a 4-mile jaunt that starts at our house and ends at our house. I cover a gravel road. The few passer-byers slow down and wave. They slow down because they want to make sure I’m really on a walk, and not needing to be picked up and taken home.
Until today’s warmer weather, the roads have been treacherously dangerous. Solid ice. We had rain and water, then cold air moved in and froze the water solid.
It was nice to walk without pending peril. I thought about the times when my mind gets caught up in gossip about our country. It feels perilous, until I settle my mind down and reflect on a loving, peaceful, in control God.
