Views from a mountain
Mr. T has been doing a lot of walking lately, with the idea of building up his endurance to do some hiking this summer. Yesterday, he had the opportunity to take a hike up a local mountain. He got some great photos of Newfound Lake. Since his pictures are wonderful reminders of God's power in creation, I thought I'd share them with my readers. Enjoy!
"Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever Thou hadst formed the earth and world, even from everlasting to everlasting, Thou art God." (Psalm 90:2)
"I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water. I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, ... the fir tree, and the pine, and the box tree together." (Isaiah 41:18-19)
"Mountains, and all hills; fruitful trees, and all cedars ... Let them praise the name of the LORD: for His name alone is excellent; His glory is above the earth and heaven." (Psalm 148:9, 13)
"Thy righteousness is like the great mountains; Thy judgments are a great deep: O LORD, Thou preservest man and beast." (Psalm 36:6)
"I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD, who made heaven and earth." (Psalm 121:1-2)
"As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the LORD is round about His people from henceforth even for ever." (Psalm 125:2)
"By terrible things in righteousness wilt Thou answer us, O God of our
salvation; Who art the confidence of all the ends of the earth, and of
them that are afar off upon the sea; Which by His strength setteth fast
the mountains, being girded with power." (Psalm 65:5-6)
Hope these photos and Scriptures are a blessing to someone today!
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
