Scenic shots from North Carolina

















Isn't God amazing!! How can we possibly ever doubt Him when he clothes His creation in such majesty and splendor and shows such care for it. We should feel like royalty to be privileged to take joy in this view. Everytime I see this kind of beauty it speaks so loudly to me of the awesome God we serve and His greatness and creativity in designing each and everything on this earth from the smallest flower and bug to the biggest mountain and rushing river. Oh that we could lose ourselves and forget our petty problems and just rejoice again and again for the mercy He has shown in giving us this life to live and worship Him in. I stand in awe of Him and wonder at the beauty of heaven that awaits all who believe in Him!! When I would wake up in the Smoky Mountains and the clouds hang low and cover the hills with a soft white blanket and the grayness of the sky hides the vibrant colors of the flowers I think of how our sin so often clouds our view of things and people that we are so close to. But then the sun comes up and the clouds break open to reveal the glory of all that is around and thoughts come of God's Son that was sent by the Father to shine a great light on our sinfullness and transform us into His son's and daughters so that we too would show His glory to all those around us. So as you take joy in these pictures also rejoice in the blessing of being one of His own if you have indeed given your life to Christ. And if not, I pray that you would seek Him out and that He would reveal Himself to you through His holy Word and His awesome creation!!
