Up Close and Personal
As many of you know there is nothing that gives me more joy than to see God's handiwork up close. One of the many blessings of moving to Colorado has been to travel to the "high places"as I like to refer to the Rockies and view the wildlife. Today we decided to make a quick trip up to the Rocky Mountain National Park to see the Elk bugling and also to see the colors of Autumn. What a wonderful day; we saw the bulls up close, really close and at one point had a ranger moving us back because we were off in the trees taking photos and didn't notice the bull traveling towards us. I was surprised at their bugling, I expected it to be much louder. What magnificent animals they are-such strength and beauty. Hubby and I are hoping to plan a few days up in the park after our newest grandchild arrives so I am looking forward to it and today's trip will keep me until then.
Thank You Father, for the beauty of Your creation and of all living things.
I am a daughter of the King, saved by grace for 37 yrs. I am married to my best friend and beloved for 38 years. I was born and lived most of my life in Northern Calif. until moving to Colorado. We homeschooled our girls for years and I love encouraging my daughters and others in their homeschooling. Hubby and I are blessed to have two incredible daughters and sons-in-law and 11 grandkids. I love spending time with my family & our dog Hunter, friends, plus quilting whenever I can.
