Garden of the Gods

I'm an itinerary girl.  When I vacation not only do I like to relax, I like to get out there and explore.  We only had a few days in the Springs, but I really wanted the girls to get a chance to see the Garden of the Gods up close.  It's such a beautiful spot. 

All the red rock, soaring vistas, crooks and crevices.  Makes for a wonderful hike. 

So we hit the paths and explored a little.  Spent the day with family. 

It was a time not only of soaking in God's beauty, but one of reflection for me.  I was really nervous about coming out to Colorado.  Honey's mom had remarried and it was our first opportunity to see her get to know the new step dad. 

This process of moving on and letting go of the past has been painful.  Honey has had a really hard time with the death of his dad.  I wasn't sure if there was room in his heart for change... 

I don't know why I am always surprised by the lovingkindness of our God.  How He can take brokenness and mend.  How He can open our eyes and expand our hearts.  It's amazing.

So it was in that place...The Garden of the Gods that I saw first hand God's miraculous power.  His healing and restoration amongst the hard edged rocks...the dirt and dust settled at last. 

Have a blessed day.
