This is a beautiful walking area that is located just down from the Lincoln Memorial in Washington Dc. I loved the rows of trees, the interplay of shadows and the icy frozen pond (to the right). We walked here early in the morning last week and there were mostly joggers and a few tourists----
Life is sometimes strange. When I travel to different places and to historical sites it gives me a feeling for the temporariness of life on this earth. Our lives are so quickly moving and soon over! Like a vapor.
I wish life could be lived fully with the sense of the power of God's love and presence, but too many times there is a battle inside of the soul. Merton wrote,
"There is only one thing that can satisfy love and reward it, and that is You alone."I love the thought of walking more fully in His peaceful presence. I have been learning more and more about the fullness of His love---but life is constantly a battle to more fully realize this in the living out of my life.
