Advice

We have had such a wide variety of experiences since last post.. It’s been great! We are enjoying life in CA.. I came across a bookmark at Sequoia National Park today.. Advice.. Which got me thinking. Nature does have advice for us, if we just stop and listen. It’s everywhere, reminders that God is in control.. I’ve been thinking recently about Jesus in the Mount of Olives, listening to his disciples praising God, and someone asked Him to silence them.. And he replied “If they become silent, even the rocks would cry out..” That to me is an incredible thought.. If we don’t confess through our worship, all of creation will cry out in worship to the Son of God.. Creation does have a wonderful way of helping us commune with the Father..

So on a much lighter note… I have some things that MAY be advice from what we’ve seen lately.. I’m sure there are deep spiritual parallels to be drawn here.. But those will have to come later.. Thanks to my travel companions for their help here.. 🙂

Advice from the Ocean: (Pacific Coast)

Things may be rocky, but eventually the tide will turn and gently wash away your troubles

Take time to wave

Go around the obstacles

Stay current

Go with the flow

Advice from a Train (Tehachapi Loop)

Stay on track

It’s okay to blow your own whistle at appropriate times

Slow and steady wins the race

Advice from the Sequoia Trees

Stand tall and proud

Sink your roots deep into the earth

Be content with your natural beauty

Drink plenty of water

Enjoy the view

(Trivia question from the last pic- which pinecone do you suppose is from the Giant Sequoia? 🙂 )

I love that last bit of advice. Wherever you are- enjoy the view..  That reminds me of a quote my mom recites often.. “I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now, let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again..” – Grellet

This is a one way trip.. Enjoy the view, do what you can.. “For we shall not pass this way again..”

See you down the trail.. Good night, Kendra
