One of our teens said it well around the campfire that night.....knowing who made all this beauty makes it mean so much more to us. Every good and perfect gift comes from above, from the Father of lights.... there was no random view that we encountered along the hiking path. Each vista, the deep blue of the lake and the sounds of the songbirds along the path, every detail that made us catch our breath were gifts given by a good Father who loves his kids and wants us to know what He's like.
Not only did this good Father speak to us through the beauty of the world, but He also gave us His Word.....more reviving than the water in your bottle after a 10 mile hike!
Hiking with these teens in the beauty of Michigan was a satisfying way to spend a week. Michigan really rocks.....and so does God because He made it just for us! Thank you God for making Michigan for me, and thank you Michigan for making me love God even more!!
