{{walk it out}}

{sabbath walk}

"the story is told of a south american tribe that went on a long march, day after day, when all of a sudden they would stop walking, sit down and rest for a while, and then make camp for a couple of days before going any farther. they explained that they needed the time to rest so that their souls could catch up with them"
{sabbath by wayne muller}

yesterday i took a sabbath walk with my sweet family. i wore flip flops and let eisley walk instead of riding in the stroller. why? because those things would force me to stroll instead of the walk turning into something i had to accomplish like exercise.

it was beautiful.
refreshing.
we noticed the vibrant colors.

and we were silly with our shadows.



we talked and giggled and enjoyed each others company.

we picked flowers.

we played in the leaves.
we let our souls catch up with us.
just what we needed as we enter another holiday season which can often be overtaken by chaos.
hope you have a wonderful week and that you {take time to let your soul catch up with you}.

grace and peace sweet friends,
