The Grand Canyon
A few years ago, we took a trip to the Grand Canyon with our daughter and her husband. We had a business errand that required us to be just about 20 miles south of Grand Canyon National Park, so we invited the kids to go along and spend the weekend with us.
The theme today for Thankful Thursday is “Thanking God for nature.” I’m thankful for not only the privilege of living in the beautiful state of Arizona with its diverse beauty, but I’m thanking God for the lovely memory we created as a family that weekend. The month was November and we just celebrated Thanksgiving! How appropriate to post this memory today and thank God for His beauty all around us as well as the family with which He has blessed me.
Here’s a few facts about the Grand Canyon before I share a photo: The Canyon is 277 miles long and ranges from 4 to 18 miles wide. It is over a mile deep.
The Grand Canyon is majestic. It is the creation. God, our Father and Creator is our rock and refuge. His beauty is seen in the smallest pansy as well as the largest canyon.
Psalm 145:5 says:
I will meditate on the glorious splendor of your majesty and on your wondrous works.
