Hiking

This weekend my husband and I went camping. We were going to go camping with the youth group from our church for the weekend and we went s day early so we could enjoy some more time away. We went to a favorite place of ours. My husband loves to fish at one of the lit docks that they have. I really enjoy going on the hiking trail. The only problem is that my husband is not that much into hiking. So the last time or two that's we have been here, I just haven't gotten to go hiking on the trail.
I've been kind of afraid to go by myself. I guess it's because I have heard reports about the number of wild boars increasing.  And I've been a bit afraid because there have been times when I have been hiking that I have seen rattle snakes.

Well on Friday morning, I decided that I was going to go hiking. My husband wanted to go fishing so I thought that taking a hike would be a good idea. I prayed and asked God to protect me.

As I walked, I thought back to when I was a kid and how we spent many hours out in the woods playing and exploring. And how I hadn't even been concerned about my safety and how even though I hadn't asked for protection, God had been faithful.


I ended up walking for 2 1/2 miles with walking to the trail and walking the trail. I even thought of taking these photos to share with you all.

Once I was done with my hike, I was so proud of myself for just doing it. That even though I had been a little scared and nervous about going by myself - I had done it. And it felt great!

I actually ended up walking that trail 2 different times- one time by myself and the next time my husband actually went with me.

We are home now- and I am awfully tired. I am sure hoping that I get a good nights sleep tonight and that I wake up in a better mood tomorrow - because right now I am not in the best mood.

I hope you all have had a good week end. :o)

  1. What a beautiful trail! I understand how you feel as I often feel how alone I am when I go on hikes by myself. I pray for safety and peace. I hope you had a good nights sleep and are feeling better. Take care!

  3. It looks like you had a wonderful time!
    Even though I live in a forested area, I too have a lot of fears about hiking anywhere on my own...I think its common sense. I used to hike with my husband a lot, but his feet bother him from rheumatoid arthritis now, so we don't go too often anymore.
    You're right about the fearlessness when we were little...I guess that's why we needed our parents to look out for us back then.
    Have a blessed week, my friend!
