We serve an amazing Creator. Simply amazing.
The landscapes, the mountains, the sunsets, the sunrises. There’s absolutely nothing that can compare to His work on this side of heaven.
A couple of girlfriends and I visited the beautiful state of Colorado over the weekend. Just a quick trip to knock a dream location off of my bucket list. I knew it was beautiful but really didn’t know what I was truly going to encounter. I remember seeing pictures two years ago from a friend’s trip to CO. They frequent the state often and have pictures from every season. I was mesmerized by their photos of white tree trunks with the bright blue sky line.
I remember thinking, “I’ve got to see this for myself.” And I’m so happy I did.
Fresh mountain air. Temperatures that were just right. Not cold enough to crank on the heater and perfect enough to let down the windows a bit and curl up in a blanket. It was great to get out of my routine for a bit and slowly take in my new surroundings. I would find myself periodically closing my eyes and LISTENING to what was around me and inhaling the crisp air.
I wanted to be able to recall each moment long after I had left.
I fell in love with one particular spot – Maroon Bells. It was a well-visited lake surrounded by mountains situated between Aspen and Snowmass. It was a place where I truly saw what I knew – that God will always be bigger than my wildest of imaginations. His creative work is one to be revered.
Colorado is a place I’d love to explore again. I know I have only seen a fraction (of a fraction . . . of a fraction) of what this beautiful state has to offer. So, it’s still on my bucket list.
But with all of its natural beauty, I can’t leave out pictures of food. I mean, come on. All that know me know, eating is non-negotiable and I’ve got a couple of pictures to prove it. 🙂
