So I just got back from a snowboarding vacation in Utah…technically I have been back for two days but since I refuse to take a day off from work to “recover” from vacation, it feels like I just got back last night. I took Saturday morning off to relax (again, something I rarely do!) and take it easy. Feeling a little light hearted and not quite so serious--a good place to be post-vacation.
So I discovered a few things on my Utah vacation…some more comical than others:
there are just no words to describe the overwhelming feeling that God is amazing. And His boundaries are limitless. And I am just so thankful, I am in a position to take all of this in. I have seen so many of His wondrous creations from the deep blue sea to the mountaintops to rushing rivers. I had to stop and just enjoy a moment of solitude…and let God overwhelm me. And in the midst of the mountains, I’m so thankful I took a moment to enjoy His beautiful creations.
1 Kings 19: 11
The LORD said, "Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the LORD, for the LORD is about to pass by".
Sometimes when we stop and take it all in...we feel the presence of the LORD just a tad more. And I can't help but be excited for the day I get to stand in His presence and thank Him for all the beauty in the world.
Solitude, snow and beauty,
Just a few reflections about everything God is teaching me in this life...a journey deeper into His purpose for my life.
