Hi, yesterday my husband and I took a short road trip over Mt. Magazine. On the south side I was able to capture a few pictures.
The town I live in is at the foot of the mountain. As we climbed higher we drove through clouds and then out again.
On the south side of Mt. Magazine, we pulled over to take shots of the water running down the side of the mountain. The sound of the water was soothing music to my ears.
Because of the rain over the past two days, raindrops were still clinging to everything.
I didn’t realize how much I missed living out of town until I was out in the middle of God’s creation. My soul is at home and at peace there. I felt so much at peace, that when we started back towards town, tears formed in my eyes. That surprised me, but the emotion was so strong I couldn’t help it.
Up on the mountain without the distractions of town, life slows down. Because I didn’t have any phone reception, I didn’t even have that distraction. I forgot how nice it is to, just be present, standing still and letting God move. He showed me that no matter what’s going on in life, He created a beautiful world for us to enjoy and that same beauty He created in each of us, if we allow Him to work.
Psalm 92:4-5 (ESV) 4 For you, O Lord, have made me glad by your work; at the works of your hands I sing for joy. 5 How great are your works, O Lord! Your thoughts are very deep!
