Pike’s Peak

I’ve been enjoying our view of Pike’s Peak this week!  I fell in love with this mountain many years ago – 18 to be exact – and never get tired of looking at it.  

Psalm 90:1-2 – A Prayer of Moses, the Man of God

Lord, you have been our dwelling place in all generations.  Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.  

One morning a beautiful view of the peak and the moon.

Another morning that struck me as so beautiful.  

And then this past Sunday on the way to church…snow!  I was so excited to see snow on the peak!  I know I’m a minority that loves cooler temps, but I’m looking forward to fall and winter.  

Thank you, Father, for the beauty that surrounds us!  

Fourteen Years

Today is our 14th Anniversary!  We celebrated in July on our trip to Niwot, and just a few weeks ago had a nice dinner out on date night.  I love you, dear husband!  Here’s to the next fourteen!  

Jesus Calling: August 31

This reading speaks to me every year; actually I have it marked and read it many times through the year.  All of us have something that feels like a “weakness” to us.  Maybe these words will bless you today too.  

Grow strong in your weakness.  Some of My children I’ve gifted with abundant strength and stamina.  Others, like you, have received the humble gift of frailty.  Your fragility is not a punishment, nor does it indicate lack of faith.  On the contrary, weak ones like you must live by faith, depending on Me to get you through the day.  I am developing your ability to trust Me, to lean on Me, rather than on your understanding.  Your natural preference is to plan out your day, knowing what will happen when.  My preference is for you to depend on Me continually, trusting Me to guide you and strengthen you as needed.  This is how you grow strong in your weakness.  

James 4:13-15; Proverbs 3:5 (AMP); Isaiah 40:28-31
