I was looking back through old posts. It is one of my favorites…..
I was backpacking with my wife. It was rainy, cold and windy. We climbed to the top of Shining Rock in the rain. We stopped to make hot chocolate behind a rock to avoid the wind. It could be placed in the top 10 messy backpacking mornings that I’ve experienced. I am sharing it with you because it is in the top 10 most favorite memories with her.
It would have been easy to focus on the negatives of that morning, but instead we saw past all of that to appreciate the moment that God had placed us in together. It was amazing to stand on top of Tennent Mountain and look over the mountains around us.
It boils down to what you call it. Believe that it is miserable and there is nothing redeeming about a situation…..and that is exactly how you will experience it. If you chose to view everything around you through the way God perceives it, then you might begin to see everything in a different way. Instead of focusing on the rain, cold and wind…..I fell in love with her again every step of the way.
Acknowledge the beauty around you through every circumstance. Remember….God makes all things beautiful.
Be Strong. Act Like Men.
