Oh, this beauty!






The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone demands as much respect as the 'other' Grand Canyon. It is more than twenty miles long and one thousand to fifteen hundred feet deep. It is revealed in changing baths of light as the sun finds and fades on its brilliant colored walls and waters.

When I have been fortunate to be in a place of such heights and depths of breathtaking canyons I am reminded of the words in Isaiah about God weighing the mountains in a balance and the hills in scales. That vision is beyond understanding when actually looking at some of His mountains and canyons. It brings me to my knees to worship and honor Him, to boast of Him if I would boast of anything.

OH, THIS BEAUTY!
copyright 2003

You weighed the mountains in a balance;
And the hills in a pair of scales.
You made the clouds that float above their peaks
With the hands that took the nails.

You made the tree that made the cross
You hung upon for all of us.

Oh, this beauty!
Let me draw it in;
So that You may draw it out again
In song,
That I may boast of You!

You made each 'blue' that paints the sky,
The wild aster, and the lake.
Your canyon walls and waterfalls
Have made my spirit quake.

You made the tree that made the cross
You hung upon for all of us.

Oh, this beauty!
Let me draw it in;
So that You may draw it out again
In song,
That I may boast of You!

I went to Grand Canyon once with my family when I was in the States...
The place was magnificent...
We decided to spend the night there in the tent and it turned out we went in the car back and turn on the heater because it was so cold outside...hahahaha
It was a memorable night...

I also went to Yellowstone National Park...All I can remember was the Old Faithful Geyser blowing its top off...hehehe

aaaa the good old days...
