The bible says I'm a triune being- 1)heart/spirit, 2)soul which is the will, mind and emotions and 3)flesh. Now the flesh is enmity against God and will rebel at every given chance. This morning my flesh didn't want to hike. I arrived at this trail head at 7 am and convinced myself to take a nap because it would be too cold.
I napped and it started to rain so I was happy that I didn't start that early, but I was worried that I would just call it a day. If your mind and flesh are in agreement you'll pretty much accomplish little in life. But when your heart and mind are in agreement, you'll do things in life that will amaze you because your flesh has to go along even though it would rather stay home, eat and sleep.
I got up around 10:30am and started getting ready and by 1pm I was enjoying Lower Crystal Lake. I had to cross Crystal Creek to get to this spot which wasn't hard, but the log was completely slick so I scooted slowly to ensure dry feet. May 24, 2019.
