I have been quiet recently on the blog.
Sometimes it is good to be quiet.
Especially when I have nothing to say.
Sometimes I speak when I have nothing to say.
And usually I regret it.
It's not that I have nothing to say, but that my heart is kind of full, and I do not really know how to even speak about it. My summer has been happy, joyful, and filled with travel. I would recommend it for anyone.
Of course, I wasn't born yesterday. I know travel takes money. Lots of it. And in some seasons of life it is impossible to accomplish such things. But, if you are blessed like my sister, you just have to look out your kitchen window for this.
I am not making this up. I had the privilege to soak up this view, between great showers of rain, of course, where the sky was clouded and the mountain hidden from view. But, still, I knew it was there. Such majestic beauty even when I could not see it for a day or two. Still I could rest in knowing it was there.
Kinda like God. I know He is always there even when I find myself questioning what He could possibly be up to in all this drama and mess we call living in a fallen world.
And some day it will all be made right. Some day all the people that have hurt us, abused us, and misused us will stand before God for judgement. I do not need to get all twisted in trying to bring vengeance myself. He reminds us, "Dear friends, never take revenge. Leave that to the righteous anger of God. For the Scriptures say, "I will take revenge; I will pay them back," says the LORD." Romans 12.19 (New Living Translation).
And, of course, here are a few more pictures because it's just such a beautiful place! And, oh, how I miss it! But especially how I miss the big and little folk there who have this view!
