Seth and I hiked up to Delta Lake shortly after dawn this morning. It was cold! And the lake was mostly iced over, but it's still a stunning color. God has created amazingly beautiful places. But even more of a gift to me, he's given me close friends who are willing to listen to all the thoughts bouncing around in my head and challenge me to grow. And often, such conversations take place while I'm getting to enjoy hiking around in all the beauty He's created. I am so thankful for my close friends.
