Holy Week Blessings I

Holy Week brought many blessings...
one of those was a journey along a river that I have grown to love
and just can't get enough of!
Our journey again brought me here to this 'secret' place...
where I beheld for the second time the wonders of God's creation.
Such beauty...it literally takes my breath away everytime!
It also humbles me and causes me to look to my Creator and my God.
Such love He has for His children to create such wonders as these!
Our journey also brought us here,
to this area...
in a tranquil setting of tall evergreens, a creek and more.
Gorgeous, awesome, beautiful, powerful, gentle, lovely, scenic, wild, tranquil...
are there enough adjectives to truly describe the beauty of this area?
I don't think so;
you really have to be there...
to smell the fragrance of nature,
to hear for yourself the sounds of running water,
to feel the emotions I feel everytime I am there...
It is indeed a place where the glory of God is unmistakable...
~
All Thy works shall praise Thee, O LORD;
and Thy saints shall bless Thee.
Psalm 145:10 KJV
 
But Holy Week brought other blessings and other memories.
Did it bring you any?
 
Blessings,
Aimee
 
Notes:
In beautiful Linn county (of course).

Thank you for taking us on a picture journey of your time outdoors glorying in God's majesty. Everytime I drive through the mountains or gaze on the ocean or watch the wildlife at "our" lake, I'm amazing that people still don't realize the attention to detail that God paid to His creation. It's all so breathtaking.

Blessings,
Betsy

Hi, Betsy!
You are most welcome--I loved sharing one of my heart's homes with you:)
Totally agree with you...I think God's attention to detail is simply and totally amazing! It speaks of His love towards us and I wonder, if things are THIS beautiful now, what was the Garden of Eden like? And what will heaven be like?
Blessings,
Aimee

Wow, that is a pretty spot. What river is it? We had a great Easter with our kids and grands. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

I agree--it's very pretty there. These photos were taken on and near one of the tributaries of the Santiam.
I saw your photos! I am SO happy you had a great Easter -- it was SO nice that day, it felt like late May instead of early spring:)
Blessings,
Aimee
