A Childhood Friend

May sound silly, but the "Old Man" was a
friend of a lot of us as kids... 

As we drove through The Notch yesterday to visit
some dear friends, it was rather sad to see the
"Old Man of the Mountain". The face fell
down 9 years ago in May,  never to over look NH again.

He wasn't an 'idol' or an 'ego of NH'
He was just a beloved old friend who was
always there and ALWAYS awaiting company!

Old Man or no, the majestic mountains
are well worth the trip. I'm just glad I know who
the TRUE ROCK is. He is the one I put
my trust and security in, and HE too is
always awaiting our company!

He is the Rock, his works are perfect,
and all his ways are just.
A faithful God who does no wrong,
upright and just is he.

Deuteronomy 32:3-5

For who is God besides the LORD?
And who is the Rock except our God?
Psalm 18:30-32

I didn't know the Old Man in person for long like you did. We did read Nathaniel Hawthorne's story "The Great Stone Face" in high school, so when I moved there, I felt like I'd known him for some time. When I read that the face had fallen off the mountain, I felt like someone had punched me in the stomach.
I understand and sympathize. Kathi

I can't believe it's been 9 years.

I feel luck to have seen the Old Man when we vacationed in Maine years ago. It was a very special site :)
