The Canadian Rockies
"The mountains will bring peace to the people..." -- Psalm 72:3
This is the verse posted on a sign when you enter the town of Radium, BC.
We are home from our last summer holiday. Tuesday the kids head to school and another busy school year will begin!
I know I say this everytime we go to the mountains... but wow... how they amaze me! How blessed I am to live here, so close to something so powerful. I am in awe.
Abby and I headed to the edge of the cliffs one evening to take some photos of the sunset. It was one of those hot summer nights, when you can smell everything beautiful.
Sometimes I even hand off my camera, just to prove that I was actually there.
"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves." ~John Muir
"God writes the gospel not in the Bible alone, but on trees and flowers and clouds and stars." ~Author unknown
When you drive by this little pond, it looks like it is a bright emerald green. I wanted to stop and take some photos to try to capture it's "green" beauty, but when we headed down the hill, through the trees and we stood right in front of it, it was no longer green.
What you couldn't see from the road, was these amazing pink water lilies that filled the pond!
Somehow, it felt like a little blessing to come across this amazing sight.
"Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy." - 1 Peter 1:8
And I just have to add one shot of all our kids...
