From my perspective, a hike in God's beautiful outdoors and then bringing that feeling into church would be wonderful. I think His love for us far outweighs any disappointment He might possibly feel.


Love this. Keep hiking and enjoying nature and your hubby. Building a better relationship with your husband while enjoying nature and making yourself stronger and healthier...there is no downside. Enjoy this time, it is a gift.


My commented edited: I don't mean to say that God is disappointed because you go hiking- not at all. His beauty is there for us and I think he is happy when we appreciate it. As for doubts- I think (hope) that we all experience those. A few weeks ago, a young High Councilman got up in church and talked about the doubts he feels. Then the other HC got up and said that he's never felt doubts. I'm not sure I believe him but some people do seem to have that complete (and maybe blind) faith.


I believe that God will find us where we are and how could what you have described not be a way of keeping the Sabbath holy?


Another hike for my list for when we visit! I love the outdoors and feel closer to the guiding spirit of the universe when I'm in nature than anywhere else (no matter how "holy" it purports to be).
