My Tumblr is 5 years old today. It’s like I have a five year old child but not really. Happy birthday!
I was always bothered when people reasoned with the phrase “You don’t know what you have until it’s gone.” Or something along those lines.
I finally thought about why it bothered me so much. It’s because the person who has to understand what they have by it being gone took whatever or whoever it was for granted. They never really considered the affect it had on their life. That makes me feel uncomfortable. People who take things for granted make me anxious.
This picture that Uncle Lester took for me on my phone is pretty accurate in describing how I felt during our hike today. I felt so puny and insignificant among these tall trees and the vast landscape. Everything around me screamed of God’s glory. It was a beautiful trail and a beautiful view. I found myself lifting my hands in ‘serving the platter’ worship mode. Haha. It was a great reminder that it isn’t even about me, which I find so comforting. It’s all about Jesus.
Happiness with eyes closed after finishing our hike up Rattlesnake Trail. The work was worth the view!
"For you shall go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and the hills before you shall break forth into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands."
