|You can't go hiking without walking sticks|
We got a little cabin. We went the cheap route. Never again. The kids shared a full size bed. Bart and I shared a twin size futon. Terrible idea. There's a reason we shared the futon. I promise. Everyone we've told thinks we're a bit crazy for doing it. But it worked out fine. Sleep is sometimes overrated.
|Looking down to where we had just climbed from.|
We saw deer, 4 of them, right in the driveway as we were leaving the cabin one day. They just stared at us. To get to experience nature in the few days we were there was just what we needed. To get away from the city. Away from the busy-ness of life. To get away from staying with other people and invading someone else's life. It was priceless. We had our own space. At least for a few days.
I can't wait to go back. To go hiking. To feel the burn of traversing miles of trails. Probably not with the kids. Maybe for our anniversary. Our hearts need a rest from our current reality. To just be in nature and be able to connect with each other and even the Lord in the midst of his creation, we need that. Oh how I wish it would come soon.
