Our respite in the mountains tells so many stories of the wonders of God's creation. His Word far outweighs any commentary I can possibly write. So let these verses from the Bible inspire you, and enhance the photos from our glorious time of recreation and renewal spent with one another and with the Lord. My prayer is that you will be moved to shout for joy at God's marvelous works.
Shout for joy, you heavens; rejoice, you earth;
burst into song, you mountains!
For the Lord comforts his people
and will have compassion on his afflicted ones.
It is I who made the earth and created mankind on it.
My own hands stretched out the heavens;
I marshaled their starry hosts.
Your sun shall never set; the moon shall not go down -
for the Lord will be your everlasting light;
your days of mourning all will end.
My Father's house has many rooms;
if that were not so, would I have told you that
I am going there to prepare a place for you?
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither -
whatever they do prospers.
Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap
or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.
Are you not much more valuable than they?
And God saw that it was good.
