The purpose of this blog is to draw you and I to a closer relationship with the living God and to be an encouragement to you who live in the same world as I. This world seeks to bring us down and keep us from catching even a glimpse of our Heavenly Father, so it's our duty as Christians to shine Christ's light in the darkness and help people to see the One Who has created us. I would love to talk with you all about Jesus and share the exciting things He is doing in our lives!
YAHOO we're going to Montana!
AND it's daytime! :)
Today we are officially at our half-way point of the tour- one month in- and somehow... it seems more like 3 months worth of adventures! :) But I love how God works- - and we shall see what He has planned for this next part as we go forth into the U.S. of A.
As we drove, it became more and more Narnia-like as the snow began to fly and the mountains became more other-worldly... wow.
Unfortunately, I had a rather difficult time capturing just how dramatic everything was... in fact, these just aren't doing the scenes justice at all.
Work with me though, and try to imagine something like those winter scenes in New Zealand. :)
I wish you all could have overheard our awesome conversation in the van as we drove through these mountains in Montana. How amazing it is that each of the rocks and hills and craggy mountain sides were placed specifically by God and came out of His imagination! And how one could climb up to the top of any of these mountains and just take in the intricacies of everything in sight: every cave or break in the rocks of the mountains, every grassy slope, every ripple of water which might be trickling down the side of a cliff face or descending amidst coarsely shaped rocks and grasses. Then... to turn around and climb down the mountain side and wander over to a grassy slope and sit down to take in yet more beauty... all the while spending each moment delighting in the Presence of God, having the coolest and most wonderful conversations with Him. I didn't even know places like this existed in North America... and we haven't even made it to Yellowstone Park yet! But oh, how much more lovely it will be to do all these things in our eternal home!
I will leave you with this update of our whereabouts :) as we continue, driving into the night along the Idaho highways. Oh wait! We're officially in Wyoming now! Yay! Goodnight and God bless you each! In Christ, Miriam
