Hubby's 8th grade Sunday School class.....before the supposedly "4 mile hike" (which actually turned into an 8 mile hike because they changed the trails!! Mercy!)
There is a brown "Danger" sign right in the back of the picture...can you see it? Danger is in RED and all caps. It clearly states that this is a dangerous area, and that many have fallen to their death in this spot. It was meticulously fenced off for safety purposes...to keep the hikers safe. And what does Child #2 do???? Yes, he bounces over the fence to get a better view. I was ready to string him up before we even got started.
This past weekend, Hubbs and I and another precious couple took the kids on a hike to a gorgeous waterfall right over the NC state line. This is Whitewater Falls. Beautiful. Majestic. Indescribable. Words that describe our God, the maker of this lovely place.
The intent was to have the kids realize how really BIG our God is, and that we don't give Him enough credit. It's not about us; it's His story, and we just happen to have some supporting roles.
After being out on the trails for several hours, we went back to a lake house where they swam and went tubing. I, of course, took a million pictures! After a cookout, home made milkshakes and s'mores, the kids watched Louie Giglio's "Indescribable" DVD. If you have not seen it, I highly encourage you to do so! I actually bought it, and I have learned something new each time that I've watched it.
Fighting sleep, the kids took it all in. Child #2 is still processing it two days later. He was asking me questions a few minutes ago after carpool. Love it!!!
Tonight, if you don't have thunderstorms or other bad weather, go out into your yard and simply look up. Be amazed. Be awed. Give Him the praise for His creation that is beyond my comprehension.
If I were really computer literate, I would be showing you all the Chris Tomlin Indescribable video right here. But....I don't know how to do that. So, google "You Tube," and type it in and enjoy!
