My walk and talk

Sometimes I just need a little walk and talk with Jesus. Here in the Outer Banks it has been rainy and windy. Right now it is cloudy, 65 degrees with 14 mile an hour winds. But I wanted to do my walk and talk on the beach. My game plan is always go north against the wind first. So I set out to walk on the beach headed north just up to a public access and then back down on the road.

 We are walking and talking, it is getting good. I am listening and just goofy smiling along the way(can you imagine what the lifeguards are thinking when they drive by me) It is a tough walk, the sand is soft, the waves are rough coming at me and the wind is pushing.  I get to the place where I will turn and go home. Nope, He has different plans for me today. He says go all the way to the pier, I am with you.

The pier is about a 4 mile round trip walk. Crazy in these conditions for me. I make it, all the way to the pier! Happy Dance in front of the fishermen on the pier. LOL

And then turn and walk on the road. I like walking on the road too because I see some beautiful homes.

My walk and talk was fabulous, like always when I take the time for it.
He has bigger plans for me, bigger than I can even plan for.

Jeremiah 29:11-14

New International Version (NIV)
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back from captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.”


  1. How blessed you are to be able to walk the Outer Banks! I love NC, and it is my dream to live there. Not that I ever will, and I do love Missouri, but---. Ah, well, we must bloom where we are planted. Hugs and blessings.

  2. Oh that is one of my favorite verses! I love your walk and talk idea. I need a good reason to walk and have a million reasons to "talk"! Thanks for the inspiration and I sure miss you girl!
