Later, we saw a flock of egrets, an alligator, and a statuesque grand blue heron. Fripp is not a beach with a boardwalk and crowds, but an island charmed by wildlife. I spent the week quietly enjoying natural beauty with good friends. What’s not to like about drinking morning coffee greeted by a spectacular sunrise overlooking an ocean?
Years ago, a lighthouse keeper carrying fifty pounds of oil each day, knew the climb was essential. A lighthouse keeper’s family lived isolated lives. They thought their sacrificial climb fulfilled their calling. Today, tourists climb to view unequaled beauty of beaches, a magnificent ocean, blue sky, and amazing foliage from the top!
Or preparing a meal for the enjoyment of friends and family gathering around your table,
Or a sleepless night with a baby knowing he receives comfort as you rock him,
Or a long drive to visit loved ones,
Or waiting for an answer,
Or waking up early to see a spectacular sunrise,
Habakkuk reminds us we don’t climb alone. And as we climb, we encourage others. So.. what climbs have you made? Were they worth the view?
What climb are you considering? Do you think it will be worth the view?
