Munising...Mitton Adventures Part 1:)

The Lord made it possible for our family to have a 17 day vacation!! What a wonderful time we had!!
We left on August 27th. Traveling for about 12 hours we arrived in Munising, set up camp, and still had time to go for a swim in the outdoor pool at the campsite and play croquet (a first for many of us:)
We spent all day Thursday hiking, exploring around waterfalls, taking pictures of God's wonderful creation, playing mini putt golf,  and picking blackberries... best of all we did this together as a family:) Going back to Munising held many bittersweet memories for us. Victoria was with us in 2010 when we broke down in Musing on our way to Toronto for Grandpa Mitton's 80th birthday. Last year, 2013, we spent a week in a campground close to Munising with one of my Dad's brother and his family. We miss you Victoria, but we are Oh so glad that you are in the presence of the King of Kings. On Friday we left for Toronto...but that is for another post:) Words and music of "Creation Sings" Keith & Kristyn Getty & Stuart Townend
Verse 1: Creation sings the Father's song; He calls the sun to wake the dawn And runs the course of day,
Till evening comes in crimson rays.

His fingerprints in flakes of snow,His breath upon this spinning globe,
He charts the eagle's flight, Commands the newborn baby's cry.

Verse 2: Creation gazed upon His face; The ageless One in time's embrace,

Unveiled the Fathers plan of reconciling God and man.

A second Adam walked the earth, Whose blameless life would break the curse,

Whose death would set us free To live with Him eternally.

Verse 3: Creation longs for His return,

When Christ shall reign upon the earth;
The bitter wars that rage are birth pains of a coming age.
When He renews the land and sky,
All heaven will sing and earth reply

With one resplendent theme:

The glory of our God and King.

Chorus: Hallelujah! Let all creation stand and sing;

"Hallelujah!"Fill the earth with songs of worship, tell the wonders of creation's King.
Keith & Kristyn Getty & Stuart Townend
