Loved

Another photo from our visit to Yosemite. Another view of Half Dome. If you enlarge the photo (considerably) you can see people climbing the face – two climbers just left if the center and one or two standing on a diagonal ledge just above the center of the photo.

My initial reaction to this photo is to think how insignificant we are. And yet, John 3:16 comes to my mind: “For God so loved the world…”

Lasting Impression

When we travel to well known locations, I like to take pictures that are easily recognizable views of the location. My wife and I recently completed a puzzle that was an iconic view from the Yosemite Valley. Shortly before finishing the puzzle, I realized I had taken a photo in 2012 that was almost exactly the same view.

This photo of Yosemite Half Dome was taken on the same trip. I was trying to capture a different image of a familiar sight.

Sometimes we see God in the familiar, such as the famous view of Yosemite Valley depicted in the puzzle. Sometimes it is in the less familiar. Maybe a spontaneous moment, maybe a long awaiting moment. Always leaving a lasting impression.
