hiker series 2.5

I wanted to post the last few pictures that I had grabbed from this season. These hikers just have the easiest smile and are so friendly. I've truly enjoyed doing this.

Jesus' time in the wilderness was led by the Spirit and a desire to have solace, to prepare and to refocus. Nature provides such a simple and quiet place to come before God.  It's sweet and intimate. I think God designed it this way; where our souls can breathe a little. It's an obvious revealing of his presence. Right now life looks a little messy, but each time I go into the woods I always come back out being more at peace. And despite all the brokenness in life, sometimes it's made sweeter and more beautiful because of that also.
