How Great Thou Art

Friday morning, August 22, snow flurries capped our Mountain tops.
That is most unusual. Usually the first snowfall arrives in September.
It was just less than two weeks that I climbed those peaks.

These are the only words from the song below,
that could express my journey
as I passed through the full bloom alpine meadows last week.
All these pictures are true to the heart.
How can man say "There is no God?"

How Great Thou Art

O Lord my God, When I in awesome wonder,
Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made;
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed.




Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

When through the woods, and forest glades I wander,

And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees.



When I look down, from lofty mountain grandeur

And see the brook, and feel the gentle breeze.

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!


I'm hoping that you can all enjoy the simples pleasures in life.
The pleasures that come from God and
are created in our hearts
to worship him alone.

  2. Great photos...a different perspective of our favorite mountain than we usually have!

    And a wonderful reminder of the awesome God we serve.

  3. Thank you for the words and pictures which should remind us all to be thankful for the 'simple' pleasures. The older I get the more I realize that the 'simple' pleasures are really what matter the most. Enjoy your day.

  4. That last picture would make a great heaader! You look so young sitting in the wildflower patch. How Great Thou Art is one of my favorites too...memories of summer church camp and singing under the stars. There is an aspect of God that I think can only be experienced outdoors. Thanks for posting such a lovely walk.

  6. Marg, I love this post. I have never climbed this mountain and I really wanted to this year. I obviously missed the best time to do that. The pictures are just wonderful and I can imagine that if I would have been with you I would have been singing the song out loud.
