Rollin' Rollin' Rollin' on the River

Mike and his siblings used to plan an annual hiking/camping trip in southern Indiana. They called it the L.Owen Memorial Trek, in honor of their father. These long weekends involved hauling backpacks over hilly country and camping out....really out....tents/sleeping bags/cook fires/washing in the river.

Several times, I served as 'shotgun,' meaning I drove and picked up. (MY idea of 'roughing it' is staying in a motel with no cable.)

Anyway, Mike has been a no show lately but last week, he and Lisa and Matt took to the Eel River for an afternoon of kayaking. Mike said it was so easy that he faced backward much of the time.

Except when Matt snapped these photos.

Peaceful times in God's nature.....with family...few things can be better than that?

  1. Good to see him out enjoying traditions, family & nature. I know that did his heart good! Absolutely LOVED Mike's talk at Oakbrook today!! He was used by God to reach so many people.
    A friend of mine was able to get her neice to come, she is not a believer, she was incredibly moved. She is about to deliver a baby & they have been told it will only live a few hours. God has used Mike to reach her today when no one else could have.
    Thanks for stepping out & listening to His leading!
