His Promise

On one of our first Mother-Daughter Getaways, the three of us went hiking in Sedona.

This is a magical place with vistas that go forever, and so do the trails! On this hike, we had been walking for about three hours.

I wrote in my journal that day: “Now that we are all grown up, we get to renew the child in each of us. This day was so perfect in so many ways. But the best part, in my mind, was the realization that no matter how much time goes by, or how many miles may separate us, we will always “be”. What we have is so special and thankfully, nothing can take it away.”

As we approached the top of the mountain, one of my daughters raced ahead and from the top she yelled, “Oh you guys are going to like this!” We thought she was talking about another stunning view, and hurried as fast as we could to catch up. I remember having to grasp on to nearby shrubs as we approached the peak because the terrain was so steep.

And there it was:

For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son.

John 3:16
