Hiking, Ten and the LIGHT

We were able to get away and enjoy a hike at Chimney Rock Park.

The weather was perfect.
The trees were beautiful.
The waterfalls were gorgeous.

The kids did not complain once about the moderately difficult hike.
Sophie made it all the way to the top with little or no help from Mom or Dad.

My precious first born turned 10 last week.
I am in disbelief that ten years have past since she made me a mother for the first time.
I am so proud of the young lady she is becoming.
I pray she will continue to walk in the Light.

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.
1 John 1:7
