Mountain Majesty

A beautiful Sunday today - and driving home from Church, we could see the Rocky Mountains in all their majesty.
It made me think of these verses in Psalm 121:

"I lift up my eyes to the hills -
Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
The maker of heaven and earth." (v. 1 & 2)

"The Lord will keep you from all harm-
he will watch over your life;
The Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore."
(v. 7 & 8)

You might want to read the entire Psalm in whatever version you prefer.
It has only 8 verses.

I took this photo up in Rocky Mountain National Park last summer.

What a gorgeous photo. I have always wanted to visit Colorado.

I have so, so enjoyed your posts on China--what a precious story. I can just imagine what the Chinese people thought of you, as I always think. when I see little foreign babies!

And, I've just got to tell you, I love how you use the word "neat." My children think I'm "quaint" when I use that word (as I do, very often!)

How mighty is our Lord!

I guess I use a lot of those "quaint" axpressions - what was common in my generation. LOL.
My kids enjoy hearing those quaint sayings from their childhood. :)

Oh Ruthie... I love this passage of scripture, I can't tell you how many times remembering it has pulled me out of "the pit of despair"!
The picture is absolutely beautiful!!

That picture takes my breath away! And just think that sunsets/sunrises are never the same.

Awesome shot. I knew those mountains were a little to close for in town.

Ruthie, Absolutely beautiful. In Estes Park this past weekend, I got to see the mountains sort of up close and I couldn't help but think of God and His majesty!

The Rocky Mountains are so majestic. I certainly enjoyed living near them in 1954-55.
