Very early in the hike a single word came to mind, SAVOR. To take time and simply be on the trail surround by grandeur and expansive space. So I did. Though I had many miles to cover each day, I also took time to simply stop and soak in the view.
As the Serenity Prayer states, To Enjoy One Moment at a Time.
In my day-to-day world of ministry, my schedule can be filled with meetings, appointments and tasks. On the trail I wanted to embrace the empty schedule. To simply BE. To savor the opportunity to hike a trail surrounded by rocky peaks and steep valleys.
The second night I noticed the tag line on my freeze dried dinner – Savor The Adventure. I can honestly say I did.
Psalm 46:10 Be still and know that I am God.
When and how do you savor life?
