Winter Smile

This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Psalm 118:24

Got the winter blues or just having a hard time getting around today? Maybe you just need to smile. I understand smiling is good for our health, helping to reduce blood pressure, pain, and increase your endurance. So what have you got to smile about today?

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice!

Philippians 4:4

Grand Canyon

The last time I visited the Grand Canyon was June 2000. The temperatures were then reaching into the high 80s at the top and scorching well over 100°F at the bottom. This time around it was very different, as the top was covered in a layer of snow and only got into the 60s.

The view was just as spectacular as I remember it being over 20 years ago. To think that God likely formed all of it in just a few hours as the waters receded following the great world-wide flood of Noah’s day is amazing.

Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell me, if you know so much. Who determined its dimensions and stretched out the surveying line?
