The top photo is papa on the 40' tower just before I stepped off on the zip line. I was fine but will admit you become quite anxious just before you step off. The man at the top making sure you are hooked in properly is Paul a good friend and the encourager who says you can do this - even at 67 (mama's age). In the picture below is mama as she stepped off the tower and began her ride down the zip line. Mama was confident in the harness and instructions from the man at the top of the stairs - without either she would have been in serious trouble. If she would have showed up at the top of the stairs without a harness, she would have been rejected and turned back.
As we walk with Christ we are encouraged to make preparations for our walk. We need to be reading our bibles and praying. We need to do all we can to prepare. Are you ready to begin this journey with Him? Listen for His voice as He encourages you.
A side note - mama and papa's house is just behind the trees in the picture. We can hear the screams of the riders of the zip line from our front porch!
