Christmas Splendor


This afternoon’s Christmas Eve church service and sermon left us blessed. The radiant sunset brushed across the heavens behind the little country church steeple on the way home left us in awe . . . God’s spectacular silent sermon of Christmas splendor.

All the best to you and yours for all His best this Christmas – Merry Christmas!                                 
                                      
Keep Looking Up . . . His best is yet to come!

“The Manuscripts of God”


A ½” of virgin, unmarked snow . . . a cool, gentle breeze . . . a pinking hour sunset brushed across distant snowcaps  – the wilderness wonder postcard God created for me to glide through before hanging up my skis and heading off to rejoin my life partner in the Great Smoky Mountains tomorrow.

I’ve missed her, and Lord willing, come Spring we’ll return together to the solitude of this awesome corner of creation with its vast wilderness reaches, rugged magnificence, and primal beauty John Muir once called  “The Manuscripts of God”.

Keep Looking Up . . . His Best Is Yet To Come!

Soul Contentment


Soul contentment is hiking above snowline to witness the day fade into a golden horizon . . . and then hustling off the mountain before zero-dark thirty sets in and your spouse calls Search & Rescue 😊

“The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display His craftmanship”.

Psalm 19:1

I M Blessed . . . May U B 2
           
Keep Looking Up . . . His best is yet to come!

Twilight Masterpiece


It’s now dark by midnight in the Last Frontier as each day shortens by about 5 1/2 minutes, but the endings are spectacular beyond words! Here’s tonight’s11:30 PM finale masterpiece viewed from our deck.

Glory!


The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament sheweth His handwork“. – Psalm 19:1

This picture was why I stood, transfixed in total awe, out on our deck at 1 AM this morning . . . the majestic Land of the Midnight Sun.

I M Blessed . . . May U B 2

Assuring Angel


Mountains are transcendent God places . . . a gateway where heaven comes closest to earth . . . where Jesus often alone went to pray.

This evening I climbed a mountain and sat in silent awe as He adorned the sunset’s glow with an angel fly-by, assuring me of His presence.

I M Blessed . . . May U B 2

For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways”. – Psalm 91:11                                
                                            
Keep Looking Up . . . His best is yet to come!
