Yesterday afternoon, we went on a hike with a brother in Christ, who took us on a trail in the Smokies. It was a beautiful day, and we enjoyed our time (driving and hiking).
As we walked beside a gentle stream, my mind kept going back to Psalms 23 verse 2 (see the end of this post). In some areas, the water was flowing, but there were a number of pools which were still, and you could see a pretty reflection. I loved the tree-shrouded hike with the wide path, leaves scattered across it, the smell of the “forest,” and just enjoying my family and God’s Creation. Isn’t the Lord amazing to give us those sweet times of refreshment?
