quiet awe.

yesterday, the hubs and i took off on a 
spontaneous off roading trip in the Sierra. 
many pictures were taken but as i began
to upload and edit, this particular shot
brought with it a sense of awe.

we were the only people on the trail ..
an easy route * 4wd not required.
a picnic in chilly temps ..
no sound but our breathing ..
we whispered because
it simply seemed the right thing.

Comments almost seem to disrespect the silent quietness of the moment!

Sherry said...

you're so right, adrienne. ♥
God's majesty is silence inducing.

Beautiful! I love that you went off into the mountains! I'd love to do that. Nothing like the mountains in the west!

Sherry said...

I've been wanting to visit nature lately, Sherry. This picture surely says "nature." How nice that you took a road trip up to the mountains. And I have to tell you, "Be Still" is one of my most beloved verses. : )

That certainly is an amazing shot! "Awe" is the natural response to such beauty, planned and provided by our Awesome Creator!

Sherry said...

lately, "be still" has been reminded to me again and again because i'm a slow learner. ;) we loved time in the mountains and want to go back soon .. time allowing.

His fingerprints took a little extra time to make the sierra so special. imagine what heaven will be like! ♥

What an amazing picture, I could sit in that spot and ponder for a very long time.
Be still indeed! xo
