I had major heart surgery almost three years ago. I was in cardiac rehab for three months following the surgery. This began a more intentional lifestyle for me. I started to walk more regularly to continue my progress and to improve my overall health. A few months back I began posting on social media with the hastag walkingwonders. #walkingwonders helps keep me accountable. It gets me out there to continue walking at least five times a week. #walkingwonders is also about connecting with God's creation. I feel closer to God when I am out in nature. In addition, #walkingwonders is about being mindful. About being present in the moment and taking time to notice God's presence around me. I don't always find a flower, a bird, or a rabbit when I walk. Some days there is just the promise, the glimmer of hope that reminds me God is near.
