Nice little story..!!

Spirit Strike:

Psalm 19:1 NIV "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands."

Sitting at that campsite and being immersed in creation is something I don't think we get to do enough of. Listening to the turkeys up on the ridge scratch around, seeing the hawks and deer passing by, and watching the fireflies light up in waves down that creek just reminded me how much wonder is in the natural world. We often forget to appreciate the nature around us. We get trapped in our fluorescent lighting and cube farms and if we aren't careful we will miss out on the best parts our short lives have to offer.

Have you ever had to step back and make adjustments in life to keep from spending your entire existence chasing a dollar? Have you ever been in danger of being swallowed up by “stuff”? If so, I would love to hear your story and what changes you made in order to maintain balance and keep focus on what’s important in life.


Every day is a battle to live to the fullest with the means at our disposal. A balancing act of weighing the need for money, but the time for life.

I took up riding in the dirt as a way to get my boys out of the house and enjoying a hobby that puts them squarely on the middle of nature. Classic case of battling the lov of electronic devices and sitting indoors all day. I tried team sports and they didn't care much for that. They love camping and are taking to the dirt nicely. My goal for the year is to get them out for a moto-camping trip for a couple of days.

Very well said. My son just turned a year old, but I can't wait to take him riding and camping when he gets bigger. So much is lost when kids get stuck behind a screen all the time.

Ya, had such a great experience the first time that it became my MO for several years... mostly with folks from the STOC crew around the country.
