About the Ordinary Hiker

A Christian camp director for many years, I enjoy ministry and being outdoors. I refer to God's creative wonder as the testimony of creation, a special place where God brings His word to life. Its where I like to be and where God speaks in His gentle voice in the awe of His creative work.

But a Moment

 

But a Moment

In but a moment this backlit reflection was gone.

 

This photo was taken in the moment of reflection and then gone. In the moment I took to change the camera’s settings, a cloud deck moved in and the moment forever gone. What we see and experience on this earth is but a passing moment. Christ authors eternity.

 

“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”

2 Corinthians 4:16-18
