Sommetimes We Forget

I wrote this story about our trip to Featherville, Idaho last weekend

Sometimes We Forget

I go about my life like many do. I get up, go to work, look forward to
days off, holidays and family.

Once in a while, I experience things to make me reevaluate my life.

There are things in this world that make me realize my little life is meaningless
compared to the beauty God has created and many never see or experience.

Ginny and I have a beautiful relationship. It brings us great joy.

On February 21, 2016, we took a trip with friends to Featherville, Idaho.
The beauty of His creations awed us.

I share my favorite picture of this trip.
I stare at it and my jaw drops. We saw this
beautiful sight with our own eyes. Days later, I am still on a high.

The first people to live in this area were the Native Americans. They knew how
to live off these lands. The first immigrants learned from them. I stared at the mountains
last weekend and wondered what those looking for a trail to the west thought.
Somehow, they managed to pull their wagons over trails, along rivers and made it
to the west coast Ė The Pacific Ocean Ė over these mountains.

Iím sure they cursed Godís work for making their journey hard, but he made them
strong.

Because of them, I was able to experience this beauty. They made the first trails.
Enjoy my favorite picture from our trip.

Godís work is amazing.

Sometimes we forget; HE created this beauty. It looks like a postcard, but this is
a real photo of what we saw.
