I spent a little over an hour with
my family some where between
entrance and 175 below the entrance
of the Laurel Caverns this past Friday
during our first camping trip of
It was cool.
It was about 90 degrees outside where
you could see the sun. But in the caverns
it's a constant 50 degrees... all year round.
(See, I did learn something on our trip.)
We took the lighted guided tour.
It was a great activity. My daughter
even asked the guide about
stalactites and stalagmites... which apparently
are not conducive to the Laurel Caverns
due to the makeup of the ground it's in.
(See, I don't remember much.)
But the coolest part of the trip through
the cavern was the room they shut us in
and turned all the lights off.
Can't even see your hand in front of your face.
That's Darkness that is never penetrated by
natural light... DARK!
But you are a chosen people,
a royal priesthood, a holy nation,
a people belonging to God, that you
may declare the praises of him who
called you out of darkness into his
wonderful light. 1 Peter 2:9 NIV
"called you out of darkness"
from the depths of the caverns...
You can't find your way out of
this darkness alone.
If you don't take light with you,
or someone doesn't bring a light
to you, you are lost...
in the dark... pitch-black dark.
The darkness of the Laurel Caverns
is broken by man-made light.
The darkness of my heart is broken
only by my savior, my God.
