Heaven and Earth

Hiking the Highline Trail in Glacier NP.

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:8-9)

Let it snow!

This is a photograph that I took a little over a week ago while out hiking with Marylynn at Sweet Arrow. The park is not even five minutes from our house and has become one of our favorite places to hike. And I love hiking or running in fresh snow.

Winter

Winter. It has its moments, like this image of a pine cone from one year ago. It’s not that I hate winter, but I don’t really enjoy the cold weather. I like snow, but I definitely don’t like driving in the snow.

Part of seeing God in all things is paying attention to the little blessings that surround us.

My word for the year is “home.”

http://wordoftheyear.me/index.php

I’ve decided that I am going to reflect throughout the year on what “home” means to me.

This photo is taken on a flight to Jamaica. Sometimes, the best way to think about home is to get away from home. I write this as we are about to leave for Nicaragua. It is interesting what you miss and what you don’t miss when you are far from home.

Family and friends are always missed, unless they’re traveling with you which is one reason why it’s so nice to travel with Marylynn. “Comforts,” like your own bed or hot water, are missed but not as much as they are appreciated when you get home.

Busyness- rarely missed.
