Well, I feel pretty excited right now. I walked/hiked about 2.5 miles this morning .... starting at 4:30 a.m. before work. Yes, 4:30 a.m.! It was actually wonderful ....

Frogs, crickets sing in quiet harmony,
Steady rhythm puslates
From their tiny, faithful throats ...

Time before daylight
I walk to the sound of the dawn.

Soft grass grows and mingles with the rough ground,
The sweet smell envelopes
Me in its fecund delights.

Time before daylight,
I walk in the freshness of fall.

I breath in the air, and breath out my troubles,
Embracing the freedom
That solitude brings.

Time before daylight,
I stroll in the quiet of night.

Praise to Lord Jesus, my Creator and Lord,
Hallelujah, He's risen,
And he fills my heart.

Time before daylight,
I walk to the song of the Son.

Time before daylight,
I walk to the song of the dawn.

That's kind of how it was this morning ... so beautiful! I find it easier to express in poetic form than prose.

But it was really nice ... and then after that I went to work. My legs are still really sore, but I am glad I did it.


  1. That is beautiful! & it's awesome you went out at 4:30! I think i'd rather die! HAHA. j/k.

  2. Thanks for the encouragement! It was wonderful but it sounds crazy to me, too!
