I brush the hair from my mouth and eyes, pull hands up into sweatshirt sleeves, and lean into the wind as we trudge up the path. We gather under the pavilion to struggle into harnesses, clip heavy ropes to anchor loops, tighten helmets. I feel much less brave than I did when I signed up for this little Nebraska adventure. It was just a momentary lapse in judgment. I’ve never dreamed of doing this. Not really.
Anyway, it’s Still Saturday. I should simply be still.
We dodge piles of deer doo in the field as we make our way to the platform. The platform that towers to the heavens—at least 12 times my height. And there’s only one way up.
Follow me over to BibleDude and meet up in the comments there? I’ve cleared the path…
I love your courage and sense of adventure! I want to do it too but haven’t found the “right” occasion to celebrate…cause when I do it there will be a celebration. Thanks for inspiring me.

I can’t believe you did it! I couldn’t in a million years! 😀
Heading over to Bible Dude now.
You are brave and beautiful. And you are my friend. Keep dreaming, sister! You matter to God; you matter to people. (And you matter to me…) xo
