Mountain hike!

Hello everyone. Hope you had a lovely day today.
 Here in my place, the sun is shining right now. Had been out for a little walk with my hubby again yesterday and it was very refreshing.

But I am going to talk about our mountain hike the day before yesterday.

Since it was cold although the sun was shining, I have to put on legwarmers.
Anyway our mountain hike began smoothly nice although very tiring. I had taken many pictures along the way, but the hike ended in nightmare when we get lost on the way back. 
I was very afraid and I felt that maybe we would sleep in the woods and freeze to death.  I prayed to God to show us the way, and after a more than hour walking He showed us a path leaded to the main road. 

Here was the starting point. 

We were going to  Osplikammen. Highest mountain in our place with 5000 residents. Ca. 300 meter above sea level

Trolls along the path?

Please join us with the hike because it is going to be long

I love the green and the blue together

Now, we can see a valley

Beautiful clouds behind the trees

Nice to see the clouds on the ground too

The grass are not green yet here

We are getting closer

Just more valleys to cross over

A dead tree has its charm too

Two trolls?

More beautiful clouds

Be careful! The path is wet and muddy

Another troll? 

 We are getting nearer

Just some more valleys to go

Well, I believe you are tired now, so we take a rest.  Hope you come along again as we continue our journey .

Have you been to a mountain hike before and get lost?

Ending this blogpost with words to ponder:

Can we outgive God?

What does He wants from us?
Listening open heart...obedience and relationship.

What God gives in return? forgiveness..mercy

endurance..patience...strength...guidance...eternal life
and the list goes on.

* Spirit of God, descend upon my heart:

Wean it from earth, through all its pulses move

Stoop to my weakness, mighty as Thou art,

And make me love Thee as I ought to love. - Croly

- If you are not close to God as you used to be...guess who
