"An incredible reality about our earth is that it is rarely dark outside. Even at night in the remoteness of the Cascade Range the stars punctuate the darkness providing nice illumination, particularly on a lake surface! Join our outstanding guides for a memorable evening of paddling, gazing for shooting stars and listening to the hush of the forest."
Let's take some time this evening to go out for a starlight canoe ride. But first, I'd like to share a song with you called "Rocky Mountain High" by John Denver. The following video I found on YouTube (which we'll watch by projector at camp before we head out on the lake) includes the song and some pictures of Colorado scenery:
Tonight let's see what it's like "to try and understand the serenity of a clear blue mountain lake."
Let's discover how "the shadows from the starlight are softer than a lullaby."
And let's find out why John Denver sang, "I know he'd be a poorer man if he never saw an eagle fly."
Being out in God's creation, realizing how gentle and yet how mighty our Lord is, is a moving experience, indeed. Consider this:
"He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names. Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite." ~ Psalm 147:4-5
Those are some amazing truths to contemplate as we look up at the glittering, distant, and numerous stars above!
