TUESDAY TEA in the Wilderness

We went hiking recently….in a land that looks like wilderness.Wilderness 1


The trail starts innocently enough…a dirt path with unnecessary cairns marking the way.Wilderness 2


But as we hike further, the trail turns into the stone of old lava flows.Wilderness 3


The cairns become vital to showing us the correct direction.Wilderness 4

The black layers of lava are pushed into mounds. Deep crevices split the rough surface.Wilderness 5


But here among the rocks of the wilderness,  bright desert flowers grow.Wilderness 6

How perfect an example of God leading us through the wilderness…with a gift of life at the end.

The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them, And the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose; It shall blossom abundantly and rejoice, Even with joy and singing. The glory of Lebanon shall be given to it, The excellence of Carmel and Sharon. They shall see the glory of the Lord, The excellency of our God.  Isaiah 35:1-3 (NKJV)

So enjoy a trail bar and sip some iced tea from your water bottle as we marvel at God’s blessings.

    What a gorgeous walk through the wilderness, Sandra. I love the markers and lava rock. Very rugged. And then to see a beautiful blossom poke through the barren landscape. Absolutely wonderful.

    Thanks for sharing, Sandra. I love all your adventures — in real life and on the printed page : )

    Ooops! I thought Sandra Leesmith had taken this walk through the wilderness! Sorry about that Sherida! It looks like one of her wandering ways : )
