Heart Beginning's

"My daughter, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways." Proverbs 23:26

"The plan of beginning outside and trying to work inward has always failed and always will fail. God's plan with you is to begin at the seat of all dificulties, the heart, and then from out of the heart will issue the principleso f righteousness; the reformation will be outward as well as inward." EGW

The Quest for Joshua Trees and Boulders

Saturdays outings are always a great way to get to know new people. This last Saturday I piled into a care with some newly found friends from the church we go to here, Advent Hope. This saturday adventure found us headed towards the desert...Joshua Tree National Park to be exact. It was a beautiful sun-shiny day with a little bit of a breeze. Soon it felt like we'd known one another for ages...funny how hiking in the desert can do that to you. We hiked up to an old abandoned Gold Mine and then headed back down to do some bouldering. There we couldn't resist playing with the shadows on the rocks and proving our ability to be conquers of the boulders. We ended the day sitting on the pavement and on some gallon buckets singing and basking in the glory of Gods creations.

Hey Liz! I haven't seen you in AGES! Someone gave me the link to your blog and I was just looking around and wanted to let you know how encouraged I was by some of the verses and quotes you have up. They were EXACTLY what I needed this evening. God works in the most random of ways sometimes! God Bless!
