There is an intense but simple thrill in setting off in the morning on a mountain trail, knowing that everything you need is on your back. It is a confidence in having left society behind and entering a world of natural beauty that has not been violated, where money has no value, and possessions are a dead weight. The person with the fewest possessions is the most free.
I thank God everyday that I have been granted the opportunity to explore His beautiful creation. I am eternally grateful that I am healthy and capable of navigating around within His perfect masterpiece. I am also thankful that possessions and money cannot begin to satisfy the place in my heart that nature has the ability to fulfill. Simplifying brings me my true freedom.
|"In His hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is His also"|
| "Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power |
and the glory and the majesty and the splendor,
for everything in heaven and earth is yours.
|"I lift my eyes unto the hills|
Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord
The Maker of Heaven and Earth"
I sincerely wish you all a blessed and peaceful Thanksgiving. I am so blessed to have all the people in my life whom I love and care about so much.
