in awe

"Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, 
places to play in and pray in, 
where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul alike" 
-John Muir {on Yosemite} 

If you've been following along via instagram, you've seen we are in Yosemite at our Swedish American Family reunion. Today we hiked beneath the giant sequoias and sat facing the absolute beauty and awe that is the Yosemite Valley, with Half Dome stealing the show. It is like a scene from a fairy land, with rushing waterfalls, dense forests, and such great majesty. It is beauty that feeds our soul. And I am in awe at the wonder and creativity of our God. Drink nature in today friends, the rest will begin to heal and rejuvenate your core.

And as a side note, i'm guest posting over on my friend Bronwyn's blog today about how Kevin and I got started in our neighborhood over 5 years ago! You can read it here.

Happy Wednesday!
