23 In Glimpses

Majesty Displayed // Glimpses Link Up

My son and I took a trip this weekend to South Lake Tahoe to attend my nephew’s wedding. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect. The wedding was on the beach, and it was warm, yet you could see the towering Sierra Nevadas still covered in snow. It was a stunning sight.

I couldn’t stop thinking about the majesty of God. The splendor of His majesty that was displayed for all to see was completely breathtaking.

Again I was reminded of the greatness of God alongside my seemingly huge challenges in life. As I looked straight ahead into the mountain of the Lord, I was humbled once again with the thought that there is nothing too difficult for my God. My purpose in life is to give Him honor and praise, in ALL seasons. For that is when my eyes will be opened to the beauty that is all around me.

And just for fun, here is a picture of my oldest son and me. We had a blast!

And now I continue to list the beauty that I’m finding in my every day life.

    I’m posting one on facebook and attempting to share it to your page. Nope, had to do it via messenger to your personal page. I also sent you a friend request. Hope you enjoy the video with song “I Stand in Awe of You, Jesus” playing in the background.
    I’m so glad you got to have such an awesome time on your trip, complete with spiritual refreshment! (hugs)

    What a beautiful juxtaposition of the lake and the mountains. God is so much bigger than any one thing, yes? Praying he’ll continue to remind us of his greatness over any of our problems. Thanks for sharing this, Barbie. Love the picture of you and your son too!

    I just posted a link to my article here but I didn’t mean to. I don’t think it actually fits your ideal link for your link party. I am so sorry. I had this tab open to read some of the links and posted without really realizing what I was doing. The coffee has not kicked in this morning. 🙂 Feel free to delete it. Again, so sorry.
