God in all things, Photography, Scenery, Travel


Marylynn and I just got back from a trip to Utah. This photo was taken on flight out. We were able to visit 5 National Parks – Zion, Bryce, Capitol Reef, Canyonlands and Arches.

We feel so blessed to not only visit these parks, but to be physically able to hike several miles each day and to have each other to share the experience with.


No One Like Our God

This photo was taken 2 years ago at Canyonlands NP. I remember hiking through one of the small canyons and climbing up on the ridge where I took this picture. Such a contrast between the vegetation in the canyons and along the trails above.

I heard this song as I was driving to work this morning and thought it fit well with this scene.

Who hung the stars upon the night

And showed the sun how bright to shine

Who shaped the world within his hands?

Who set the sky upon the hills

And told the waters to be still

Who spoke to form the universe

Only you, only you, only you

There is no one like our God

(No one like our God, Lincoln Brewster)


Really Seeing

This is a famous arch in Canyonland NP, Utah called Mesa Arch. I must admit that I had never heard of it before we went to Moab, Utah and I saw it. However, not long after returning home from the trip, I saw a poster in the local coffee shop with a picture that included the arch and I immediately recognized it. Since then, I have seen it a number of times.

I’m sure that we have all had the experience of “seeing” something without really noticing it. Maybe that something is actually a someone. It is often said “the more you know, the more you know you don’t know.” I think it could also be said that “the more you see, the more you realize how little you see.”
