Well as for sight seeing, it was great, and what a wonder it is to see God’s creation! I saw each tree, flower and various plants. You can see the way that each one grows, and there are no two the same, and let us remember who was the Creator of it all. If we go back to the first book of the Bible, in Genesis 1:11-12 we read, “And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.”
During this trip we could see that God has a wonderful creation which He has given for us to look at and to enjoy ourselves in its surroundings. It was a wonderful time, and although it was the second time I have been to Jindabyne, it was really wonderful to spend time together with family and friends. It’s also a great way to get out of the cities and to spend that time in God’s wonderful presence.
What a great Sabbath! Outdoors, in the wonderful sunlight, we took time out to enjoy the coolness of the air, and were able to have a wonderful lunch as well – I must say it was very nice. We also climbed the tallest mountain in Australia, well, what an achievement! It did not matter if there were some that were slow or fast to the top, the best part was that we all got there in the end. It is interesting to know that the way to heaven is not always to the swift or to the slow, but it comes as a reward to those who patiently press on, who will all then meet at the same place.
It was a great time, and coming home was a bit sad having to leave a wonderful place. Hope to see you there next time we go…
