Piano Harmony

This beautiful old piano sits in the Hotel Denver lobby in Glenwood Springs, Colorado.

Whenever the spirit from God came on Saul, David would take up his lyre and play. Then relief would come to Saul; he would feel better, and the evil spirit would leave him.
1 Samuel 16:23 (NIV)

I love this verse, which demonstrates the power of music to calm our souls. Can’t we all testify to this in our own lives? I wonder how much depression could be lifted by listening to beautiful music and dancing to it…

Ice Season

Undoubtedly the most amazing seasonal sport I have ever seen: Colorado’s Ouray Ice Park. See the ice climbers in the middle of the photo. A festival is held each January for climbers of all skill levels at this man made park in one of the most beautiful gorges in Colorado.  Breathtaking!  

The breath of God produces ice, and the broad waters become frozen. 

Job 37:10 (NIV)

Train Time

The prime time for train travel is long past but this clock at Denver’s Union Station keeps on ticking.  In days gone by, the station was plain and purely functional, but it was refurbished recently and is now gorgeous inside with an Art Deco design throughout. If you are in Denver, it’s a must see! For the Time photo challenge.

And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years, and let them be lights in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth.
And it was so.”
Genesis 1:13-15

Vibrant Flower

The day before my wedding my Matron of Honor and I went to the Colorado State University Flower Trial Garden to gush over the blooms.  It was mid October but unseasonably warm so there were plenty of blossoms to ogle over. This one stood out for the Vibrant challenge. I also love the little critter who found a blushing pink petal to perch upon. Now that we’ve been married three months, I hope to find more time to blog and read your posts!

I lie down at night and fall asleep. I awake in the morning—healthy, strong, vibrant—because the Eternal supports me.
Psalm 3:5

Wedding Victory

Victory is the joy of finding someone wonderful to love for a lifetime!

We celebrate great victories because they do not come easily. This marriage came to me after years of disappointing dates, pressing through hopeless and lonely nights, facing fears of intimacy, overcoming the panic of losing autonomy, putting past hurts behind me, and wrestling to discover God’s will for my life. We celebrated our victory of love in a fairy tale Colorado wedding on Oct 11th, 2015!

Victory

My beloved is mine and I am his.
Song of Songs 2:16

Ornately Brilliant

If you ever get a chance to see Cartier’s Brilliant exhibit, go! It is breathtaking and includes jewelry from princes, princesses, Hollywood movie stars and more. I’m a bit late for the Ornate challenge but better late than never, right?

Especially in light of the inexplicable horror in France yesterday I thought this scripture was appropriate for today’s post…

The light of the righteous shines brightly, but the lamp of the wicked goes out. Proverbs 13:8-10 NET



Colorado Office Grid

I had serious bicycle accident in July and haven’t done a blog post since. It feels great to get back into photography! I took this shot of my office and then looked at this week’s photo challenge. Thought it fit the bill well.  In the beginning, Lord, you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. Hebrews 1:10 (NIV)
