A Special Place

The woods I walk through with God....


  1. You're welcome to come for a walk any day!

  2. When Jonathan Edwards was converted to Christ, his experience of things, including the creation, changed. "There seemed to be, as it were, a calm, sweet cast or appearance of divine glory in almost everything," he wrote.

    One aspect of the creation that caught his attention was a spider that he observed swinging from tree to tree by its webs. Where some people might have thought, "Creepy," or "Sure proves evolution," or just shrugged and moved on, Edwards saw evidence of God's glory. He saw "the exuberant goodness of the Creator, who hath not only provided for all the necessities but also for the pleasure and recreation of all sorts of creatures, even the insects."

    Is God so good that he wants even his bugs to have some fun? Looking elsewhere at the creation, Edwards wrote, "God's goodness is like a river that overflows all of its bounds."

  3. Ike,

    That's great! When I look at creation, it seems to be a praise song or a masterpiece of love. "He wants even His bugs to have some fun" - great!

  4. Ha ha ha Lydia, I was totally going to post the exact same thing: Jealous, when I read your response. Me too. I am looking forward to moving back to BC (Godwilling soon!) Ah, trees and mountains. . .

  5. oh and now I just read Ikes comment. totally funny cause I just watched Charlottes Web tonight (for the first time) where they really pressed the point that a web of a spider is a miracle in and of itself. . . Fascinating!!!

  6. Hey Lewis Family! (Becca, right?):

    You also have a standing invitation to walk in the woods over here, too!

    Thanks for stopping by! Hey, from some of the photos you've posted of BC, I'm jealous of anyone who gets to live in THAT beautiful scenery! I've always longed to see the Pacific Northwest...

    Peace to you today!


May the amazing grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the extravagant love of God, and the intimate friendship of the Holy Spirit be with all of you. 2 Co. 13:14
