Attached are photos from both Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks. At this time of year, the beauty of these parks are a bit muted. You see a few trees that are wearing their fall “glory,” but fall in the Sierra’s isn’t astounding. What you do see a “pop of color” here and there that I just happen to love! Both parks were pretty quiet when we went, and that made it even more special. It was a time (at least for me) to remember not only how small my problems are, but how big God is.
I love the picture of the path with the granite rocks dotting the way. I had to watch each step carefully as I walked, making sure to navigate around the bumps and place my feet on flat ground. Why? Because I am such a clutz! Now there was plenty of good ground to step on, but I had to pay attention to make sure that is where I was walking. I took the picture because that is really how I am feeling right now. My life’s path feels a bit bumpy, so I am taking it slow trying to make it through. The picture gives me hope, as the path does eventually smooth out, and I know my life’s path will too. It is only a matter of time…..
Until then, I am thankful that I live so close to these beautiful places where I can breathe in fresh air, see blue sky and get a change of perspective!
