What to do for my birthday? Well, my husband and I have taken so many trips and done so many wonderful things over the years, this year I told him I just wanted to keep it low key and decide at the last minute. I didn't want it to be so... about me, but about how the Lord would lead me. I wanted it to be spontaneous and heartfelt. So the day before my birthday I was reading the Word and the Lord spoke to me through His scripture and reminded me of a place I had been once before. It was such a place of serenity and refreshment and I knew it was what He wanted for me. I called my husband and we were off. The place was Silver Falls State Park outside of Salem, OR. An 8.7 mile round trip hike to 10 spectacular waterfalls. I will now let the pictures do the talking:
The Lush Green Forest
The Start of a perfect Day
Upper North Falls
I could have spent all day reflecting in this beautiful spot
Middle North Falls
The Most breathtaking moment is standing behind the falls
Lower South Falls
Again Standing behind the Falls
The Lord truly blessed my Birthday in every way. Getting away from all the hustle and bustle, remembering what truly matters and letting the rest go...
Thank you to my husband for sharing this special day with me.
