We Went Hiking Again

But this time, we went way, way farther.  Seven miles or so, we think.   In the crisp air and sunshine.
It's one of those amazing worlds my husband inspires me to enter, that world of hiking longer than I think I want to, that world that tests me to push ahead.
And you know what?
I don't even feel a whit sore.  Maybe I'm in better shape than I thought.  It certainly hasn't been for lack of trying.
We also went Christmas caroling.  Some dear new friends live next to the trail head and we {I} couldn't resist.  And they loved it--almost as much as we did.
Will you tell me about your favorite carols?  The ones you could sing by memory at a moment's notice?
Beginning in December, I'd like to tell you about some of mine.


  1. "Joy to the World" is the first Christmas carol to slip from my tongue. And whenever I whistle absentmindedly, whether it be December or no, it is invariably "Deck the Halls."

    Next month my sister and I will go to the nursing home to sing two unusual Christmas favorites: "Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence" and "Remember, O Thou Man."

  2. I love that you include some not-so-traditional pieces in your ministry. I pray your music will touch hearts for the Lord!


Greetings, fellow climbers! Leave your marks on the steps--I'll be delighted to hear from you.
