Take A Hike!

I enjoyed everyone's participation on the adventure poll! Here's the results:

47% of you chose hiking as your adventure-of-choice.

Skydiving came in second place (23%).

I don't think I would ever sky dive unless someone else's life depended on it (If MY life depended on it, I'd likely choose death closer to the ground). I am pretty sure I don't have it in me. I am not much of a thrill-seeker to begin with and I'm afraid of heights. Bad combination. Honestly I'm a little anxious just writing about this, so I'm going to stop now.

I like hiking and I'm glad it was the number one pick. There is something so wonderful about being out in nature, the artwork of God. To those who care to listen and observe, God reveals His divine nature through the complexity of creation:

For ever since the creation of the world His invisible nature and attributes, that is, His eternal power and divinity, have been made intelligible and clearly discernible in and through the things that have been made (His handiworks). So [men] are without excuse [altogether without any defense or justification]. -Romans 1:20 (AMP)

Creation is not divine, but God's divine fingerprints are certainly all over nature. If you doubt His existence, take a hike. Literally.

Seek and you will find...

  1. I'm just catching up to your blog now (insert I'm a horrible friend quote here)
    Can you believe my 3 "adventurous" cousins who actually hiked the entire Applilation Trail??? The whole AT in 4 months 18 days... haha if you ever have a whole days worth of time here's some pics..
    Camping out in a foreign country should be somewhere on your to-do list too ;)
    And listen here missy- skydiving was not that scary!!! It was such an incredible experience to be a "bird" more or less for a minute or two!
