Consider the Heavens...

Of the many fantastic adventures we had while on our trip, one was to traverse the mountain trails...hiking:) Dad and the older ones were all set to go, but Samuel was determined that he could survive the two and a half mile hike...and we decided that we just couldn't turn our backs on those amazing binoculars.

The trail was dotted with numbered posts, so every time one was passed a shout would travel down the line: "number four!...number ten!" and so on. Towards the end there were a few who hoped every number spotted was the last:) But the weather was gorgeous, our energy high and we made it to the beautiful lookout! It's amazing how small you realize you are while gazing out. How we can deny the Creator when we are able to see His amazing creation? The foliage was glowing all around us as we trekked back down the trail and we think about it often while waiting for our Florida trees to take on their Fall wardrobe...

"When I consider Thy heavens, the work of Thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which Thou hast ordained; what is man, that Thou art mindful of Him?..." Psalm 8:3,4

    God's creation is truly AMAZING! And the verse is so fitting and very true.
