  • 3-2 AdventureMaze1.jpg An aMAZEing afternoon of exploration

    Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee. Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.
    My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness, and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips: When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.
    Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
    — Psalms 63:3-7
