The Glorious Outdoors
I was in the outdoors this weekend. Or should I say that I was out the outdoors this weekend?? When I say I was outside, I'm not talking about my backyard! I was out and about in nature!
My parents live in Running Springs. It's a mountain community and it so great to be up there. It's peaceful, easy-going and oh yeah, it smells really fantastic! I was there because my brother was out from Arizona to fish with my Dad at a trout tournament in Big Bear. When they weren't fishing we got to spend some time together, which was nice.
The other thing I got to do was taking some awe-inspiring walks. Now, I have walked up there before, but never to give praise to God about what I was seeing. On Sunday my Mom and I walked around a botanical path in Running Springs. There was such a diversity of trees and plants that I had to give God praise! On Monday we walked around Lake Gregory (which is where this picture was taken. Granted not by me. Yes, I Google images, not ogle...but doesn't everybody??). I stopped more than a few times to thank God for all He created that I was witnessing. Maybe I am indeed growing in my faith! How could you not when I think off all that I was seeing and experiencing!!
This was taken from Psalm 111 verses 2-4:
2 Great are the works of the Lord;
they are pondered by all who delight in them.
3 Glorious and majestic are his deeds,
and his righteousness endures forever.
4 He has caused his wonders to be remembered;
the Lord is gracious and compassionate.
