Today was a wonderful day. Today we went for a hike in the refreshing rain, and enjoyed seeing numerous rainbows; even a double! Today we encouraged each other with songs like "Mansion Over the Hilltop" as we labored up a small mountain. Today we ate a picnic and spent the afternoon around a campfire listening to stories from older folks' past backpacking adventures in the wilderness. Today I stood by a clear mountain stream that reminded me of the “pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.” Revelation 22:1. Today I watched a Bald Eagle soaring effortlessly in the air, reminding me of God's promise that if we wait upon Him, we “shall mount up with wings as eagles;” Isaiah 40:31. Today I was able to see Christ anew through the works of His creation. Today was a wonderful day!
