Wonderful hike at Swayback. Kept thinking about Ps. 46:10, "Be still and know that I am GOD." All of this was balm for my soul. Had lots of time to pray and think, just to "soak up" the love and fellowship of The FATHER (and I needed it). We all do. I spent most of the time thinking about my Family of Faith and the future.
Forest was very still and quiet. Little breeze to stir the treetops. Most of the sound was my footsteps in the leaves of the forest floor along with the occasional passerine. Beech trees were the stars of the show - some were still in their lime-green suits. Lots of pictures taken today.
