Wandering With My Thoughts


It was mid-spring as I was walking home from my friend’s house, so long ago. It was a 15 minute walk, so there was time to just lazily stroll and  enjoy the surroundings the way that kids do. I kicked rocks with my feet, I watched the birds in the sky; I let the day lead my thoughts.

At some point, I came to the middle block which was a little parkette and decided to sit on the swing for a while. I was not thinking that I would be late or that I might get in trouble, I was happy! All throughout, inside and out, spring was here and summer was coming! I pumped the swing as high as it could go feeling that quick loss of gravity before you start to come down again. The freedom 

I eventually got bored of the swing and started walking again and it hit me.. the actual, tangible feeling of spring.  All of my senses were filled with it, my whole being was consumed by this glorious, intoxicating feeling.

Like falling in love, I was lost in the senses… a nearby lilac bush mixed with the scent of new grass; the birds sang so happily, trumpeting out their return to home and saying hello to me.

I stood still for a moment on that pathway. I felt the sun tingling on my cheeks and arms, sweet kisses that blanketed me in warmth. I raised my face full to the sky and beheld the beautiful pure blue of the azure sky. I closed my eyes (for it was too sunny to look at the sky without glasses),

This surprising, wonderful feeling overtook me. As I stood there, embraced by the sun and the songs, the smells and the warmth, I felt the presence of God. I must ave been only ten or eleven, but I felt Him. I didn’t know what to do with this feeling so I just said thank you for this beautiful day.

And so it was; such a beautiful day.

  1. Easter, I had that exact same experience about the same age. I felt I had blended into the landscape, at one with the rest of the world. Very hard not to belive in God after that.


    • Oh wow! I know.. I never lost my faith even at that young age, I guess God knew what was coming to me down the road and wanted me to know that He would be with me through it all. 🙂

      Thank you so very much for sharing that with me.. that is very special, indeed. We are so blessed. 🙂

    • It surely was a special gift. I believe that He gave me this to make sure that I would know He is with me through the difficult times that were ahead. I knew that I always had Him, no matter how little I understood that for years. I am so grateful for that memory and that moment.


      • This is interesting to me because, though I knew he called me from a young age, I didn’t have that same gift of knowing He was near–He seemed so very distant, as I tried to reach for Him. But although I made a lot of mistakes along the way, I have His Presence very near me now–so that early “searching, calling in the darkness” wasn’t wasted at all.


        • I understand.. there was a time for years (after I got married) that it felt like everyone else could “hear His voice”, had visions, had dreams, were prophesized over, and I longed for it but had nothing. My heart searched and searched begging to hear from Him. Never doubting, just waiting and waiting. Then it just happened and when it did, it was like a river that never ended. I have been so blessed by His constant presence all of my life, but more tangibly during the last thirteen years or so.

          I am so glad that you found the same presence and joy with Him. It is such a wonderful gift 🙂


  2. I am really enjoying the theme/design of your blog.
    Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems?
    A small number of my blog audience have complained
    about my site not working correctly in Explorer
    but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any ideas to help fix this issue?


    • I don’t have any issues, but the theme that I chose was supposed to be completely compatible with pcs, ipads, iphones, etc.
      In your settings, there is an area on appearance that allows you to choose if you want to make it mobile compatible – perhaps try that.. that is all I can think of.

      Thank you, by the way for the compliments on the design and theme – it took me a long time to get it just how I want it


I love and appreciate feedback. Feel free to let me know what you think. Bless you lots, Easter Ellen
