Rock Climbing

At the end of May, Steve and I took Memorial Day weekend to travel throughout West Virginia. This is something we've always wanted to do, but haven't found the time to do it until this year. It was a great trip - you've seen much of it on the blog. We went to several state parks, including Hawk's Nest, Babcock State Park, and Blackwater Falls. We drove a terrible road up to Spruce Knob (the highest point in the state), and we toured Greenbanks National Radio Observatory (inspiring three posts last week). 

Our last stop before heading home was Seneca Rocks.  It's a fascinating place to see from a distance. You can go read about it here .  The only way to reach the top is through technical rock climbing. As I was taking pictures, and saw the rock climbers - and you should be able to see them in the images.

Aren't they small compared to the rocks they are climbing?

Sometimes faith feels like that. We are so small compared to the problems faced by the world. We are so small compared to the problems we face, sometimes. At times the mountains seem - not only seem, but are - insurmountable.

The rock climbers remind me that with God, all things are possible. With God, we can reach where we are going.
