It’s been a couple weeks since I’ve updated this blog, and even though there aren’t as many readers here as on my Kitchen Kop blog, I do normally try to be a little more regular with posting than I have been recently. Having the kids home more all summer makes for a lot of fun, but since I can’t do it all, I’ve been putting Mom stuff first.
Also, we’ve been getting ready for our Colorado trip. I’m actually writing this from our hotel room now while Kent has the kids down at the pool.
I wanted to tell you about that picture above, the view that brought tears to my eyes.
It was taken when our train was almost to the very top of Pikes Peak, near Colorado Springs. Off in the distance you can actually see Kansas. I love how the clouds make dark shadows on parts of the mountain; and look at the lake and the green meadow – breathtaking isn’t it? When looking around up there, my mind was flooded with thankfulness to our Lord for how good He is, that He would create such beauty for us to enjoy while here on earth. What a gift.
Here’s our view AT the top of Pikes Peak:
Here’s a cool shot right in the romantic location of…the Whole Foods parking lot:
This first is another one showing how crazy the clouds are up there at the top:
Are you finding the beauty in God’s creation wherever you are right now?
It’s everywhere you look, whether it’s in the people you love or in your surroundings. Here are more examples of His handiwork that I’ve captured and shared here on the blog before.
