And I know no better way to tell you this story than through iPhone photos. I must finish quickly, because lights out approaches, so here we go!
It started with a trail.
We had a little over an hour to explore before dinner, and so we decided to explore this wonderful camp!
Everything displayed the amazing creative power of God!
"The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour out speech; night after night they reveal knowledge." (Psalm 19:1-2)
And then came the creak.
Because I was with my mom, the only adult in the group, we had to follow the girls much ahead of us, but little did we know their comminmentnt to the trail. And so we waded the creak.
And much, much more water.
Because of the rain, the whole pathway flooded, spreading mud and water everywhere. But we kept going, for after all, the trial wasn't that long, right?
It turns out that we accidentally took the almost four mile hike to the top of the hill, rather than the little half mile trail we intended. Yes, four miles in in an hour and a half over the flooded paths of dirt.
An adventure, even more.
I could have just complained, but then I thought: I could actually enjoy this journey, the view and the excitement, and then, the fun began. Then we reached the top.
And then all those puddles, my ruined shoes, and the hungry way back all felt worth it. The cross awed me and God's provision made me wonder, for if I had known which path I started at the beginning, I would have never started it, but after going it, I realized how much joy came from the beauty and excitement of nature! God knew best. He always knows best.
I must go to bed now, but you will hear more about my camp experiences and how God is working in my life! Comment below an unexpected adventure of yore!
