Mark 5:19 [Jesus said,]"Go home to your friends, and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and what mercy he has shown you."

I was walking around the Reservoir again, enjoying the different trees, birds, and insects. I had seen some birds on a nearby trail a couple of days previous that I didn’t recognize. Coming around a curve, I noticed them again. A couple walked toward me, and I asked them about the birds. “Wild turkeys,” they explained. We chatted briefly about good hiking spots in the area, and then we went our separate ways.

Trails have helped me to step outside of myself, unencumbered by my own fears and insecurities, while at the same time, being the deepest, realest me possible. I want to capture everything about the trails, the smell of the air in the woods, the glimpse of one of God’s creatures scurrying away. Walking trails helps me realize how much God has done for me and reveals the promise of what God will do for me. I fervently pray that you can find the same for yourself.
