Just finished a four day backpacking trip through Yellowstone. It was absolutely amazing.
As I sit here, just a few hours before 2008, I would really like to write a reflection on the past year and talk about some of my favorite stories, but I can’t.
- Because I’m dead tired.
- Because I can’t stop thinking about the past four days.
Being in the middle of the Rocky Mountains in the middle of winter, I really got a chance to connect with nature.
Really I did.
Yes, in that way.
But as I was sitting on a dead tree in the middle of Yellowstone, I looked around and just took in everything around me.
The perfectly placed pine trees.
The birds flying overhead.
The gigantic mountains I was seeing for the first time.
Sitting there, I realized that nobody planted all those trees. Nobody raised those birds to fly around the park. Nobody built those mountains to be a tourist attraction.
This is all God’s handiwork.
I’m sure I’ll have more stories later. Right now I need sleep.
Happy new year.
God is good!
