Well, I'm back from a week long skiing adventure in Whistler, Canada. For the most part it was a great trip. The first day of skiing was a little rough as it rained most of the day, sleeted and hailed some in the afternoon, and gusted 50 mph winds at the end of the day. But the conditions got better the next few days, like skiing in knee deep powder...oh so good.
Along with my gracious family, I went with my buddy Zach who is working right now with a ministry in Branson, Missouri called Doulos. We had a fun time talking to a lot of the locals there. "No worries" is a common expression when you are saying goodbye. Also, saying "right" after every sentence is also very popular.
I think for me, these trips to the tops of the peaks make me appreciate more than most other places the beauty of creation. These massive rocks covered in snow seem to point out a small fraction of how beautiful and mighty our Creator is.
"For behold, he who forms the mountains and creates the wind, and declares to man what is his thought, who makes the morning darkness, and treads on the heights of the earth--the LORD, the God of hosts, is his name!" - Amos 4:13
