God in all things, Scenery, Seeing God

What’s in a name?

This is a photo of the Yellowstone River, taken from the top of the lower falls. That mist at the bottom of the photo is coming from the falls. The name, Yellowstone, was from the Hidatsa name which was translated as Yellow Rock River. It is not certain what the origin of this name was but it seems possible that it is related to the color of the rock in the Grand Canyon as seen in this photo.

God is identified as “Yahweh” in the Bible, usually translated as “LORD” in English. Yahweh is actually pronunciation of the Hebrew for “I am.” A simple name with deep meaning. God is and was and always will be. The source of all that exists. Even yellow rock.
