"HE IS GOD AND I AM NOT."

"THE EARTH IS THE LORD'S AND THE FULNESS THEREOF, THE WORLD AND THOSE WHO DWELL THEREIN." - PSALMS 24:1

"ARE NOT FIVE SPARROWS SOLD FOR TWO PENNIES? AND NOT ONE OF THEM IS FORGOTTEN BEFORE GOD. WHY, EVEN THE HAIRS OF YOUR HEAD ARE ALL NUMBERED. FEAR NOT: YOU ARE OF MORE VALUE THAN MANY SPARROWS." LUKE 12:6-7

"SEE WHAT KIND OF LOVE THE FATHER HAS GIVEN TO US, THAT WE SHOULD BE CALLED CHILDREN OF GOD, AND SO ARE WE." 1 JOHN 1:3

"MY HUSBAND AND I LOVE THE OUTDOORS. WE GO CAMPING, KAYAKING, HIKING, AND BIKING EVERY CHANCE WE GET. RECENTLY, WE BIKED PART OF THE GREAT ALLEGHENY PASSAGE (GAP TRAIL) FROM MEYERSDALE, PA TO THE MASON DIXON LINE. IT AMAZES ME HOW ALL DISTRACTIONS JUST MELT AWAY AND MY FOCUS SHIFTS TO THE TRAIL AND THE BEAUTY OF NATURE THAT SURROUNDS ME. I MARVEL AT HOW MANY OF THE FIVE SENSES TAKE IN ALL GOD HAS CREATED. FROM LISTENING TO THE BIRDS SINGING TO THE FRAGRANT AROMA OF THE WILDFLOWERS TO VIEWS OF AN IMMENSE MOUNTAIN RANGE.

IT IS HERE GOD REMINDS ME THAT THE EARTH IS HIS AN ALL IT CONTAINS. IT IS HERE THAT HE REMINDS ME THAT I AM KNOWN DOWN TO THE NUMBER OF HAIRS ON MY HEAD. IT IS HERE THAT I AM REMINDED OF HOW HE LOVES ME AND I AM HIS. IT IS THEN HIS PEACE GOES WITH ME, NOT JUST ON THE TRAIL BUT THROUGHOUT THE DAY KNOWING HE IS GOD AND I AM NOT, AND THAT IS A GOOD THING."
