  1. Great post my friend! Muddy roads, well I hate them, but they are in my life regardless. And they are good and draw me close to God.

  2. Most of my closest moments with God are found under a canopy of blue skies or in a cathedral of trees. I feel so close to God in nature. My heart sings along with the song of life all around me, and I know joy deep within.

  3. “Love of the mud, of the leaves that brown, and the snow that doesn’t melt in the shade.” Such a great reminder that if we walk away at the end of the day without a little mud on our jeans, we may have missed an adventurous opportunity with Jesus. Thank you!

  4. Oh wow. Thank you for sharing. We sometimes don’t know where God is leading us, but along the way He teaches us to TRUST.
    Made me think about a canyoneering experience several years ago, which I wrote about here:

    “To see this beauty, and to realize that we are infinitely more beautiful in His eyes is almost unfathomable. He, who took such precious care in forming the tiny wonders inside this scratch on the surface of our planet has used the same foresight in shaping our own lives. We are the pinnacle of His creation. “

  5. Beautiful, Nikole. That is what we are supposed to do: follow God on the muddied paths, around or perhaps through the potholes, fording the rivers. Wherever He leads. Walking “hand-in-hand with God.”
