Fear thou not;
for I am with thee:
be not dismayed;
for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee;
yea, I will help thee;
yea, I will uphold thee
with the right hand of my righteousness.
Isaiah 41:10

Have a blessed Sunday,

My husband & I recently celebrated out 30th wedding anniversary!!

…to celebrate, we planned a very special trip,
however, things don’t always go as planned,
and I found myself in the ER just two days before
we were scheduled to leave on our trip.

I am so thankful that it was nothing serious and I am recovering.
If you’ve ever been in the ER,
especially if you have a lot of pain,
all kinds of thoughts want to rush in
and fill your mind with visions of what could happen…
It’s not easy to keep those thoughts from taking over.

I thank God that I felt his peace,
His comfort,
and his strength.
…and that I was happily released about 5 hours later!!

We didn’t exactly get to go on the trip we wanted,
but we did go to a nice place and get some fresh air
up in the Blue Ridge Mountains…

We went on a hike and I’d like to show you
some of the things we saw…

It was hard to walk past the pretty flowers
without stopping to take 5-105 photographs…
My husband is a very patient man.

We came across this bench with a heart shaped by flowers!

Some of the more steep areas had steps…

Now we’re ready for another 30 years of wedded bliss!!

I am blessed beyond measure!
My husband is my best friend,
he is an amazing person in many ways,

…and we’re still very much in love!

Looking forward to all God has for us!

We have been up in the mountains and after several days of rain, the sun has finally made an appearance!

It was too pretty outside to stay indoors so we decided to go on one of the hiking trails close by…I just didn’t realize it was one of the ones marked “strenuous” on the map I’d left back at the cabin.

After my initial shock, and following close to my husband, I felt better and actually enjoyed it very much!

Here are just a few snapshots from our hike…

One of the many “little falls” we came to as we crossed the creek several times throughout the hike.

This little bridge was so pretty, with the sound of the waterfalls underneath and the coolness of the woods all around us… We wished for a hammock to stop and take a nap (at least I did!).

We are taking some time off to rest and “recharge our batteries”. The place we’re staying has no TV, no Internet, not even a radio. To get signal for phone calls to our kids and our parents we have to drive down the mountain and go to the nearest town which is not far.
To some of you this may sound ridiculous, while to others it may sound absolutely wonderful… For us it was the latter, and so here we are.

Don’t wait to feel overwhelmed…
Get away and rest now…
It’s worth it!

Happy trails,
Love to you all,
Daisy
