My thoughts turn to Donna; my oldest sister. Today was her birthday.
Most people get a driver’s license in their teen years. Donna failed to learn. If she had passed a New York State road test, driving privileges may have later been suspended. At the age of 27, Donna suffered a stroke which left her legally blind in one eye. If Donna did not have a ride, she walked.
Donna walked to work, church, and doctor’s offices. When needing groceries or the Sunday newspaper, she walked.
Living in separate states, I did not see Donna often. Yet, when visiting; I walked too.
They were pleasant walks. We talked, laughed and reminisced.
Walking is a common theme in the Bible.
“And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the garden (Genesis 13:17 KJV).”
In his presence, we find love and peace …
“And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour (Ephesians 5:2 KJV).”
Like Donna, Enoch walked.
“And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:
And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years:
And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him (Genesis 5:22-24 KJV).”
