Too beautiful for words...

I was looking through some old pictures that I was just getting off my camera and came across some pictures from one of my favorite places in the world. I have been going to Lake Guntersville for 15 years, first as a teen and now as an adult chaperon. It is one of my favorite things that I do on a yearly basis.

This year I got to take Emily Klair with me and she had a ball and was a very good girl. (only one minor incident with the The kids were so sweet to her and she made some great memories of her own. In looking at the pictures I was amazed at how beautiful it was. I mean I go every year and it is exactly the same...nothing ever changes about it. But when I looked at these pictures I could not believe my eyes.

It is a very special place. Lots of people have made the decision to become apart of God's family at this lake. Some have gotten first kisses on the dock, some have been thrown into the icy frigid lake by groups of fun loving gentlemen,and who can forget the gum tree?? I think there is gum on the gum tree that is older then me, there have been haunted houses made in some of the old cabins, and some have been hypnotized and ate onions like apples (yes it was gross to watch!!), there have been serious talks and realizations of how real Satan is and how easy it is to fall into his traps. This place will always hold a special place in my heart.

While I was looking over some of the pictures of this trip I realized that this place is too beautiful for words. I now know that I have taken it for granted these last 15 years. In fact I also realized I take a lot in my life for granted. I have so much to be thankful for and so much in my life that is "Too beautiful for words" its time I realized it!!!
