Just want to let you know that I've switched to using weebly.com for my blog. From now on, all my posts will be on my new blog. Please check it out!
|Ready for some rest & relaxation|
|Each morning and evening we had worships. They were a blessing.|
|The ocean--probably my most favorite part of the trip. |
A place where you see so many object lessons, and spend time with friends.
|We had some time on one of the days to play some group games. One of those included tug-a-war.|
|"He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us;|
he will subdue our iniquities;
and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea." (Micah 7:19)
Friday night was the most beautiful sunset I think I have ever seen.
Two of my friends and I were running down to the beach a little before in order to see the sun set.
All we could do was just stand there and watch. It was most glorious, and reminded me that
the sunset was "a picture painted by the great Master-Artist upon the
shifting canvass of the heavens" (ML 337.2). It was the best way to welcome the Sabbath!
|Just like the sunset reflected back on the water, let us each let Christ reflect His character in us!|
|There was definitely some time for fun too! :)|
|I think it was the best R&R so far. Not only were we refreshed physically and mentally|
from the daily routines of life, but we were also refreshed spiritually by being able
to spend more time in God's Word and learn lessons from nature.
|Beautiful view of Donner's Lake from Donner's Pass.|
|Going to the river with friends....a great way to cool off during the hot summer days.|
|Visiting family was a highlight for me....here are all of us cousins except one.|
|We were able to take a trip to Fountainview Academy to see my cousin Shiana graduate :)|
|Getting ready to hit the trail|
|View from the parking lot.|
|Let's do this! :)|
|Most of us hammocked....much more comfortable sleeping suspended than on the ground :)|
|The lake we camped by....it was so clear and so beautiful...fish jumping out of the water, and in the morning the sun would sparkle on the ripples.|
|Despite being so dry here in CA, where we were there were so many beautiful flowers.|
|Sabbath we climbed up the mountain on the other side of the lake|
|The views at the top were amazing|
|We brought our hammocks up there and had church|
|View of Glacier Lake|
|A pot full of ramen! Paige was able to fit 5 packages in that small pot. :)|
|Trying to roast mini marshmallows....|
|We went cross country most of the way back. I love going cross-country because you can see so much more. We came upon this hillside full of beautiful flowers and lots of butterflies.|
|Making our way to a lake (cross-country)|
|And we made it. We ate lunch and then headed home.|
