All posts for the month December, 2012


I spent the whole day working at the church today. We moved furniture, boxes, food, etc. It was a lot of work, and I left the church feeling pretty good about all the work we accomplished. Driving home, I listened to a Nickel Creek song, “The Hands”:

The boy only wanted to give Mother something
And all of her roses had bloomed
Looking at her as he came rushing in with them
Knowing her roses were doomed
All she could see were some thorns buried deep
And the tears that he cried as she tended his wounds
And she knew it was love
It was one she could understand
He was showing his love
And that’s how he hurt his hands
He still remembers that night as child
On his mother’s knee
She held him close and she opened her bible
And quietly started to read
And seeing a picture of Jesus he cried out
“Momma, he’s got some scars just like me.”
And he knew it was love
It was one he could understand
He was showing his love
And that’s how he hurt his hands

I wasn’t so proud of what I had accomplished after that. What I did today wasn’t enough. Whatever I do can never be enough to come close to what Jesus did for us.


I wanted to go Jeeping today, so I posted on that I was going, to see if anyone wanted to come along. I got two responses, and we decided on a trail that was convenient for everyone. Lucky for me, it was one I had not been on yet: Left Hand Canyon (FSR 286) just outside of the Peoples Republic of Boulder. (Its called that because of the ridiculous laws, I was told today that farmers that raise cattle in Boulder are charged a “Methane” tax, because their cows produce methane that pollutes the air.)

We had a really good day! I saw some beautiful scenery, met some folks, and got to climb some rocks in my Jeep! I will let the pictures speak for themselves.
