Yes, it has been a while. And I’m sorry. I could give you a million excuses as to why I haven’t been writing, but let’s just say that I let life get in the way. I think we have all been there and done that. We let this and that get in the way of what we know that God would have us to do.
Let me fill you in on what has been going on during my hiatus.
To begin with, we just got back from a cruise to Alaska. Oh. My. Goodness. Start saving now and do it. I promise, you won’t regret it. I didn’t see the wildlife I would like to have seen (that just means I need to go again) but the scenery was out of this world amazing. Which brings me to my verse for today –
Psalms 61:2 KJV – “From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.”
For me, this verse 100% describes how I felt the entire time we were gone. And believe you me, I saw so many rocks that was higher than I.
I remember hiking on a trail near Mt. Rainier and saying to my husband, “Wouldn’t it be so cool if the rocks cried out right now?” I remember seeing a whale surface and flap his magnificent tail and think, “Wow, I am fearfully and wonderfully made indeed!” I remember riding down a mountain on a bike near Skagway Alaska on Independence Day and singing in my heart “America the Beautiful”. I remember walking on a rainforest path in Ketchikan Alaska and just being totally blown away at the beauty in destruction.
I’m telling you, this trip really made me see over and over again how magnificent and creative our Creator really is.
I’ll leave you today with this – my heart was so overwhelmed with gratitude to our Lord and Savior on this trip. I am blessed beyond belief and spoiled beyond imagination. I can’t begin to appropriately describe how big everything is that I saw. But in everything, I saw the handiwork of my God. I saw His love, His compassion, His attention to detail, His creativity and His desire to show Himself to us in everything around us.
