wishing i was still in the poconos


as i promised, here are a few nature shots from the poconos. we did a few nature hikes, though it was sooooo cold, we didn't stay out long. but i loved the one waterfall we visited and the river next to where we stayed. it is such a beautiful place, and i often think about what it would be like to live there.

of coarse chris wakes me up to reality that we will never live there and i am ok with that...but i am a dreamer, and there is nothing wrong with that either.
moriah and i did our own hike one day which she said was her favorite part of the week. i love it that moriah likes the outdoors so much. she reminds me a lot of myself when i was that age. such an imagination.

the hardest part about vacation is coming back. it was so great being in the poconos. i don't think we will go every year, though the rest of the fam would like to. i am hoping to go somewhere warm next time:)

just a thought to end with from Isaiah 9: the people who walk in darkness will see a great light; those who live in a dark land, the light will shine on them. you shall multiply the nation, you shall increase their gladness; they will be glad in your presence as with the gladness of harvest, as men rejoice when they divide the spoil. for you shall break the yolk of their burdens and the staff on their shoulders, the rod of their oppressor, as at the battle of Midian. for every boot of the booted warrior in the battle tumult. and cloak rolled in blood, will be for burning, fuel for the fire. for a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; and the government will rest on his shoulders; and his name will be called wonderful counselor, mighty God, eternal father, prince of peace. there will be no end to the increase of his government or of peace..."
what an amazing thing to find peace today. not that it is the first time in history that our world has seen wars, depression, terrorism, natural disastor, persecution...evil has always existed. but there is also peace, love, and grace through it...in it.
