Sunlight Shinning Through The Woods

Hike along Missouri river

My dog and I started hiking along the path following the Missouri river.

When we came to the end of the trail, you can see the bridge where we started. It looks closer than we walked. The trail weaving causes a longer walk than it appears. We sat down along the river and rested. My black lab is not too friendly with water. I threw a stick in the river, she jumped into get it and went under. That was enough for her, she turned around and got out.

Hiking further into the park we left the river and headed to some bluffs. To the left was cane grass and to the right it appeared to be a planted weed for the whole field was covered with it.

Getting to a stopping point I tied up the hammock and rested. My dog was bushed and went to sleep under the hammock.

We followed the tree line as far as this photo shows on the way back.
It was a good day off.

Moon Set

Photo taken 6:23 AM September 23rd, 20007

The moon went down fast after I took these photos.

"When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars, which You have ordained;
What is man that You take thought of him,
And the son of man that You care for him? "
Psalm 8:3,4

Forest Edge

A lot of times woods will present an imposing front that will discourage people from entering. But after you get through the forest edge the forest opens up. The photo below is about 50' inside the forest edge of the photo above.

What happens is the availability of light. Along the forest edge trees put out branches to catch the light all the way down to the forest floor. Inside the forest light sometimes will not get down very far so the trees shed their branches below because they are not producing without sunlight.

When I enter these woods it is almost like going into another world.

Walking by faith can be like this at times. God may lead you to do something and you are afraid to follow that leading. But when you do things fall into place. God will direct you how to go as you follow His directions.

"Isaiah 30:21 "And you ears will hear a word behind you, 'This is the way, walk in it,' whenever you turn to the right or to the left."
