  2. I enjoyed this! I’ve had an inkling to go hiking lately, which for me is unusual lol. I’m not what you would consider an outdoorsy person. Sounds like you had a good time! Minus the bee sting of course!


  3. So beautiful Julie, especially this:”Sometimes God will not allow the mountain top experience, not to punish but to teach. I am learning to lean into unmet expectations, trusting Jesus,” along with your prayers for those who want to be hiking but are unable. I have so many memories that I cherish from the days I took hiking for granted. But oh it is so true, that He is Lord even of our unmet expectations. He sees the whole picture, when I can only see the short view right in front of me. Thank you for these beautiful photos and thoughts of encouragement today! Blessings and Prayers for no more allergic reactions!

    1. Oh Bettie, I did not know you used to hike. Thank you for sharing that with me. And thank you for letting me know how this post encouraged you. I thank Jesus for that. Jason is ok, no reactions. We just opted to turn around to be safe as we were far from the car😎 and didn’t know what might happen. Blessings to you this long weekend!
