Tuesday was a highly anticipated day because we were once again going to the abandoned mining town of Silver City. Three years ago the D’s took us up to the same city, and we had such a blessed time in this electricity-free town, which is slowly being rebuilt by local townspeople.
We left around nine and arrived about eleven. After we walked around the city a bit, we headed further up into the mountains for lunch and a hike. In the middle of the beautiful hike just when we had reached the top of the mountain we were climbing, a thunderstorm came up, which they say is rare in Idaho. To avoid the lightning, we headed to the trucks.
Back in Silver City, we found a campsite for a campfire and picnic. We had such a great time of fellowship sitting around the fire and then moving under trees to avoid the on and off rain. The D’s generously provided us a hot dog roast and s’mores. Thank you so much D family!
On the way home, it was very sobering to see five wild fires that had started from the lightning. As of Wednesday night one of the fires had burned over 1500 acres. Those fires are a stark reality to me of hell and the responsibility we as believers have to warn others of the fate to come.
Certainly it was an AMAZING day enjoyed by all. Thank you D’s.
Mary for the rest
“Thy righteousness is like the great mountains;
thy judgments are a great deep:
O LORD, thou preservest man and beast.
How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God!
therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.”
