camped out

I haven’t been feeling it in the last few days.

I’m aware of the gift of spring and I think of Him but I haven’t been feeling it.

Is that a natural thing for a Christian?

Do you every feel as if you’ve made it to the summit and set up the Coleman?

Now I'm here and I can see a beautiful world so I think I’ll hang out for a while. Why not I can make smoors and hot dogs. I have a nice tent with a front porch so the view is a good one when I wake. Don’t get me started on the beautiful sunsets. It’s comfortable I don’t look down because I was there and I need not revisit that and after all we all know that Milly’s past was. . . .well she had a good time on her way up and thanks God for the pool of water to take that away.
So I’ll sit here awhile with my feet dangling over the edge and enjoy the view.

What?
I have to keep moving.

Are you sure?
I like this spot.

I want to stay here because the climb might be something I don’t want to do.

What if the view isn’t as nice?

What’s that?

I have a map.

Where?

On the shelf.

Let’s see where It leads me in the morning after all I’ll need to break camp and tidy up. It’s late and all so a good nights sleep and then I’ll take a good look at that map after breakfast and the laundry.

I have to look now!

Fine I’ll open the map and see where I need to be. Here it is this one was Mom’s my Dad gave it to her it has her handwriting in it of things she wanted to remember.

Psalm 64 King James

1Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer: preserve my life from fear of the enemy.

2Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity:

3Who whet their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words:

4That they may shoot in secret at the perfect: suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not.

5They encourage themselves in an evil matter: they commune of laying snares privily; they say, Who shall see them?

6They search out iniquities; they accomplish a diligent search: both the inward thought of every one of them, and the heart, is deep.

7But God shall shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly shall they be wounded.

8So they shall make their own tongue to fall upon themselves: all that see them shall flee away.

9And all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God; for they shall wisely consider of his doing.

10The righteous shall be glad in the LORD, and shall trust in him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.


Wow this one is a guide. . . a Sherpa in this world of mountains. So I’ll pack the tent and move on up.

Great analogy. I guess there's no way to win the race if I keep stoping before the finish line. ;-)

I don't know. I have not been feeling it much lately either but so great to have the assurance that it is not feeling-based.

a Sherpa in this world of mountains -- I like it :)
