peace to my heart these mountains have brought

Ahhhh.... what a weekend of pure, utter perfection. I really can't think of any other way to describe it. Reuniting with friends and experiencing Camp DeSoto in a way that very few people get the opportunity to do was a weekend that I am truly grateful for. I needed a "retreat" from the world, and God placed me there for a reason.

How we spend our days is of course how we spend our lives. 
-Annie Dillard

It is as hard to live everyday for the Lord, as it is to die for the Lord. 

In Heaven, it is always almost sunrise. It is the most real thing I've ever seen.   -C.S. Lewis, The Great Divorce

Even in corruption and sin, we see glimpses of God's glory. By not recognizing them, we are robbing God of the glory that he deserves and we are robbing ourselves of knowing God.
