Nature Points

This week I have been walking with Luke to try to shed a few of the pounds I gained over the last few years. Mostly I attribute them to babies but a few of them are nursing school and a few are aging and a few are a relaxation of my eating habits.

We found a great park to walk in in Brevard. It is a rails to trails affair, and I love the vehicle-lessness of it. I also love that it winds through some woods and over a creek. Luke and I vie for "nature points" won by correctly identifying something along the way. I am winning 6 to 2. Luke said he would have gotten five points for catching a snake, but I scared it away (I got one point for correctly identifying it as a snake).

I am scared that someday I will forget these moments. How gracious is our God that God gave us abundant life! How gracious is our God that God gave us memory.
