Here's another welcome from way down in MS! I was also brought into the fold after discovering amazingly deep sleep and comfort in an HH Explorer UL surrounded by a Super Shelter for the cold. After a miserable 1st night, every additional night that week led to increasing hammock bliss. By the last night ( or even before despite being sick ) I knew something had changed for the good!
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
