Like the recent Solar Eclipse, sometimes life lines up nicely and you realize that it’s ok to be content. Lord knows there is enough out there trying to bring us down.
“Deflector shields up, Scotty!” … keep it all out, I say. Let only the good in.
Scrolling through the thousands of iPhoto shots taken within a three hour’s radius of our house, I sometimes shake my head in disbelief. Are we really living in this mountain paradise or will the alarm soon ring and we be brutally returned to the grindstone?
No. This is where we are now.
Hiking up above tree line, to mountain lakes surrounded by imposing mountain walls, not a soul here to disrupt your moment, save for the occasional Marmot! And don’t you turn your back on these furry thieves for a moment… for they WILL steal your well-earned snacks!
Sitting on the grassy slopes above the lakes on a lazy summer day, looking down hundreds of feet to the pristine mountain lakes, the sun and puffy clouds dancing, casting their playful shadows all around, and you know that life doesn’t get much sweeter than this.
Way below, a hiker and his trusty hiking doggie are making their way up… and soon they will be passing by on their way farther up the trail.
And I sometimes wonder, is this what Heaven will look like?
