The WORD on Wednesday: Trust

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart;
and lean not unto thine own understanding
 In all thy ways acknowledge Him,
and He shall direct thy paths.
Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD 
and depart from evil... 
 Happy is the man that findeth wisdom,
and the man that getteth understanding
For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver,
and the gain thereof than fine gold.

I'm learning Lord.

Sunday at the Seashore (and Bay)

Sunday saw us at the seashore again,
 this time further north.
I never get tired of being there,
 where I can watch the endless surf and fishermen,
walk in the soft sand
and listen to the sounds of the sea birds.
I think I love it too because I can enjoy both the sea and the mountains by just turning my head.
Do you know the Bible says someday the sea shall be no more?
That is hard for me to even imagine as I've been to the sea often since I was little.
Makes me wonder why...
Oh well, God is in control and He doesn't make mistakes so I will leave it in His hands
and keep making many visits to the sea in the meantime.
(next time, I am hoping a special visitor is able to come with me...)

May your day be filled with peace.

And I saw a new heaven and a new earth:
 for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
Revelations 21:1 KJV
(Not too much further are these beautiful verses!)
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes;
and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying,
neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
And He that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new...
Revelations 21:4, 5a KJV
(now THAT is something to look forward to)

Walking Alone: A Hike in Oregon's Forest

It still shocks me that after years of traveling the PNW,
there are still places I've never been to;
this place was one of them.
How often we had driven past the narrow road that led upward to this forest;
this park;
this wonderland
and never given it a second thought--
this time we turned...
 After a short drive we made another turn
and found ourselves in the middle of a forest
(on another narrow road).
We followed this road for awhile...
 And then we came to a parking area and the real adventure began...
my DH did not feel up to walking and at times, in the past, I would have let a combination
of fear and caution stop me from walking a trail alone.
But something in me really wanted to do this...
so I headed off.
The trail led along a creek for part of the way...
the trees and lush foliage enveloped me;
I asked God to walk with me.
 At times the path was faily flat;
at times it lead downwards
of course,
at times it lead upwards.
 Everywhere I looked I was astounded at the beauty of God's creation!
During my hike I passed only 5 other people,
so most of the time I was alone with my thoughts
(a bit fearful at times from being out of my comfort zone),
my prayers for protection and help
(I foolishly was wearing sandals),
and the sounds of nature.
I wonder,
if it is SO beautiful on earth...
what was the Garden of Eden like?
The Garden when God walked with His creation.
 And then,
another climb
and there it was--
the goal of this trip
(but really it wasn't the only goal)
Thank you Lord for leading me besides the still
and not so still waters.
Thank you Father for safely guiding me through the forest and then back to my hubby.
Thank you God for helping me overcome my fears.
