The term walkabout comes from the Australian Aboriginal.
With no physical destination in mind, individuals go walking through the outback alone.
The idea is that a person can lay aside community obligations to go on a quest to find their inner self and how they fit in the world. Alone in the wilderness with only their thoughts and memories, they are able to survive by connecting with their spiritual heritage.
The experiences of their forefathers, recorded in ancestral traditions called songlines guide them in seeking food, water, and shelter in the hostile outback environment. Thus, they learn to allow the thoughts and feelings of past generations to counsel them in critical decisions as they look to the future.
Metaphorically, Papaw’s websites are thinkabouts.
The idea is that we use these photo essays to spend time alone in the landscape of our thoughts about God and His eternity.
Our Christian heritage, along with an innate love for God will guide us in learning to find faith, hope, and charity in our everyday lives while confronting the superstitions and doubts or our darkest moments.
Take some time to click and pray your way through at least a few minutes of these online meditation aids and if you enjoy your experience…

We currently publish four websites . . .
Explore your thoughts about gratitude as you think about Jesus and President George Washington’s proclamation of the first National Day of Thanksgiving under the constitution.
“The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” James 5:16
Will God answer a prayer 228 years after it’s spoken?
Meditation in these thoughts takes us beyond Santa Claus and a two-week holiday season.
We invite you to explore your personal thoughts about God and the Christmas story.
Is it a religious myth, or a logical story of a loving God?
Read the Christmas story page on our website and decide if you think Christianity stands apart from other religions.
This four-page photo-essay provides some good thoughts to think about America on the 4th of July, and every other day of the year.
America has 4.67% of the world’s population while holding over 25% of the wealth. So why has God blessed these 13 British colonies?
Come, explore God’s hand in the generation that we call “The Founding Fathers.”
We have all lost a loved one and miss their presence in our lives. This website publishes comforting meditative thoughts for Christians.
Your loved one may not have been an active church member, but do we have to be an active church member to love Jesus?
We invite you to find answers in your personal faith on the forgiveness page of Papaw’s thoughts4loss.
Support of this ministry is provided by our ministry partners who comfort grieving families in their community with thoughts for grief and loss.
. . . Meditate in His Presence day and night . . .
