Vacation is always a fun time to do things you don’t normally get to do.
This vacation as a family we climbed a mountain – that mountain in the picture! To the top!
There are no such things in Florida, let me tell you!
As we climbed, I thought of this song:
Higher than the mountains that I face
Stronger than the power of the grave
constant in the trial and the change
One thing remains
Your love never fails, it never gives up, it never runs out on me
I kept thinking about how constant God is and how we try to teach the boys about how not to let circumstances dictate their attitudes. We were enjoying the sights as we began our climb.
The more I listened, the madder I got! I finally said, “Enough! I’ve had it! I’ll take him back to the car.”
My level-headed husband prevailed, encouraged our boy, and we kept climbing. Thank you, Tim!
The rocks, scenery, grandeur. I kept thinking about how constant God is and the lesson we’re trying to teach our boys – don’t let circumstances dictate attitude. And I was convicted. Because I’d done that very thing! Ugh!
The good news is, we made it back down safely,
and lived happily ever after!
yeah, right!! 🙂
here are some other pictures of us at the summit. Enjoy – now that you know the rest of the story 🙂
