Morning Hike

When my friend was over last week, she told me how she and her husband would wake up early and hike Lone Pine from their backyard.

“From your backyard!?!?!?” I exclaimed!

Naturally, I had to invite myself over to do the same. Up at 5:15am, I snapped a shot of our backyard sunrise before throwing on some clothes and driving to her place. Immediately, I turned the radio off in the car. The quiet of the morning was too serene to be interrupted.

Throughout the horizon, lightning flashed. I was so excited! Spring thunderstorms are my favorite. It never did storm, but it was spectacular. I passed a herd of elk, and smiled big. God, you are so amazing!

We had a wonderful hike! I realized that although I run every day, hiking legs use totally different muscles. Ah, but it felt so good.

“How can I pray for you?” my friend asked before I left. And that is how you know your friend is a keeper! I am so grateful for her heart for the Lord and for people and for her prayers for me! I can’t think of better way to start the day!

I was going to end there, but I have to say one more thing for the memory books… when I walked back in the house, the boys were sitting at the counter with eggs and a raspberry white chocolate muffin and a big glass of milk, courtesy of their big sister. “Mom, I made the boys breakfast!” Sierra exclaimed. And, that made my whole day!

I love the color orange, summer fruit, crisp fall evenings, snow-covered mountains, and spring flowers. I LOVE my Jesus, my family, and my home... all things craft-related, cooking, and creating make me smile. You can often find me coloring on my walls with chalk, waltzing through Trader Joe's looking for the monkey with my little ones, dancing through our house to blasting worship music, or blogging while sipping coffee.
