STUMBLING FEET

Location: Lincoln, New HampshireMile: 1820Miles to go: 372Psalm 116: 6-9 The LORD protects the simple hearted; when I was in great trouble he saved me. Be at rest once more my soul, for the LORD has been good to you. For you, O LORD, have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling. That I may walk before the LORD in the land of the living.When walking 15-18 miles day after day, it’s inevitable that falls will occur. I have had more than my share of falls. Just this past week, I fell 8 times! Most of my falls are just my feet slipping out from under me and I land on my bottom, or on the bottom of my backpack. This past week, while going down Mount Moosilauke, I fell face forward landing between two large stones and forward rolled into trees and bushes. Thanks be to God! I only had a skinned knee and a bruised ego.Lord Jesus, I thank you that you are protecting me physically! I thank you that you have saved me spiritually! I thank you that you are protecting me emotionally. I thank you that you are there to walk with me every day.1800 milesMy hat almost blew off from the strong wind blowing.Steel rings hammered into the rock to assist with the steep climb.Vermont/New Hampshire borderI’ve reached the Whites.
