Celbrating God's Creation

We love camping.  There is something cathartic about getting back to nature, the simple life, where schedule, time, chores are not the focus.  Just enjoying the day together as a family exploring and relaxing is priority.  No cell phones, no emails, no texts, no facebook or twitter - just us together.  Its purely magic.

One of the greatest joys in camping is hiking to get to the water.

Once you are at the water, anything can happen.  Wether you are big or small, throwing rocks in a rippling creek is sure to bring smiles.

Especially when there is a big splash!

And climbing over the log bridge to make their own "beaver dam".  Yes, boys of all ages love the rivers in the woods.

And climbing up on a large stump and showing off your super powers.  There is nothing like a good imagination in the heart of the forest.

And there is nothing like the long river that sings is song loudly as it crashes over rocks to clear your head.  The sound replaces all the tension and sounds that the city and daily life has put in there.  Nothing but peace, joy and appreciation for all of God's magnificant creation.

Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord from the heavens; praise him in the heights!
Praise him, all his angels; praise him, all his host!
Praise him, sun and moon; praise him, all you shining stars!
Praise him, you highest heavens, and you waters above the heavens!
Let them praise the name of the Lord, for he commanded and they were created;
He established them forever and ever;he fixed their bounds, which cannot be passed.
Praise the Lord from the earth, you sea monsters and all deeps, ire and hail, snow and frost, stormy wind fulfilling his command!
Mountains and hills, fruit trees and all cedars!
Wild animals and all cattle, creeping things and flying birds!
Kings of the earth and all peoples, princes and all rulers of the earth!
Young men and women alike, old and young together!
Let them praise the name of the Lord, for his name alone is exalted; his glory is above earth and heaven.
He has raised up a horn for his people, praise for all this faithful, for the people of Israel who are close to him.

Praise the Lord!

Psalm 148
