Mountain Solitude

solitude

Recently, I stood in this very spot and the Lord reminded me gently “I am with you.” After months of heartache, His tenderness brought tears to my eyes during a moment of solitude. In the frenzy of our responsibilities it’s so easy to forget to come away and rest. By the time we remember, we are dry and parched with nothing left to give. Solitude is sometimes the only place we can hear His still, soft voice and be filled.

Come away.

Fire Edge

I got married nine months ago and it’s taken me that long to return to blogging. I’m excited to be back especially since I’ve upgraded from an iPhone to a Sony A6000, woo hoo! 


Fire Edge is my submission for this week’s photo challenge. This scripture is where I got the idea for my blog so I’m including it for this photo:

“‘When you reap the harvest of your land, do not reap to the very edges of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest. Leave them for the poor and for the foreigner residing among you. I am the Lord your God.’” Leviticus 23:22

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)

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.

Vail In A Blur

Vail, Colorado as we sped past on Interstate 70, which crosses the Rocky Mountains.

Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely,
just as God now knows me completely.
1st Corinthians 13:12 (NLT)
