Father’s Day Adventure

So for Father’s Day we went with our friend
Brian and his two little ones to  
Scott, I and the kids have never
been there before. 
Best part about it is that is 
FREE admission!!!
It was a lot of fun! 
The kids loved seeing all
the animals
and feeding the ducks! 
Below are some of the pictures
that I took as we walked around the farm! 

Cherokee Legend

Do you know the legend of the Cherokee Indian youth’s rite of Passage?
His father takes him into the forest,
blindfolds him an leaves him alone.
He is required to sit on a stump the whole night and
not remove the blindfold until the rays of the
morning sun shine through it.
He cannot cry out for help to anyone.

Once he survives the night, he is a MAN.

He cannot tell the other boys of this experience,
because each lad must come into manhood on his own.

The boy is naturally terrified.
He can hear all kinds of noises.
Wild beasts must surely be all around him .
Maybe even some human might do him

harm. The wind blew the grass and earth,
and shook his stump,
but he sat stoically,
never removing the blindfold.
It would be the only way he could become a man!

Finally, after a horrific night the sun
appeared and he removed his blindfold.

It was then he discovered his father
sitting on the stump next to him.
He had been at watch the entire night,
protecting his son from harm.

We, too, are never alone.
Even when we don’t know it,
God is watching over us,
sitting on the stump beside us.
When trouble comes,
all we have to do is search out to Him.

If you liked this story, pass it on.
If not, you took off your blindfold before dawn.


Moral of the story:

Just because you can’t see God,
Doesn’t mean He is not there.

“For we walk by faith, not by sight”
