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.

If you would like to participate today, join us at Lynn’s website. Tell of how you see the Lord's beauty in nature and remember to be thankful today!


  1. Such a beautiful thankful post.

  2. I have always been amazed by the Grand Canyon! Such a mighty creation of God's.

    Happy Thankful Thursday!

  3. Thanks for sharing that awesom picture of the Grand Canyon. The scripture you picked out goes with it beautifully.

  4. I'm so glad to see your photo of the Grand Canyon. I'm also happy that we both live in Arizona and one day we will get together so we can talk in person. Happy Thankful Thursday. BTW, my hubby and I are leaving in the morning for Flagstaff. A friend loaned us their cabin for some much needed R&R.

  5. I would love to see the Grand Canyon in person. Isn't God great?

  6. Great pics! All creation sings His praises!

  7. Very, very beautiful! I hope to visit the Grand Canyon one day! It's so magnificent!



  8. Wow, they're breathtaking! Would very much like to visit Grand Canyon one day...

  9. Beautiful!!

    Thank you for asking about my breathing. My allergies are still bad. I am still coughing a good bit. I am MUCH better than I was a couple of weeks ago, but still very tired and dealing with congestion.
    Thank you for being such a wonderful friend...Blessings, andrea

  10. Scientific studies said that Colorado River created the canyon. I say, this is one of the wonderful works of God's loving hands. Magnificent indeed! Thank you for sharing.
    My family planned once to go but never did. So I hope we get to see it one day. If not, still okay, I'll just come back to this post and look at the picture. Feels like I had a tour! God bless sister Mary and take care as you travel. Praying for you always. Blessings and love.

  11. That is one place I have always wanted to go and see..I need a passport now though,,lol

  12. Truly a spectatular place! I've been there twice and can't wait to go back again.
    I heard they had to take the Scripture verse down that were at some of the vistas on bronze plaques. :(
    Thank you so much for being so faithful at praying for my family over the past month. It's meant so much to have praying friends.
    I'm trying to get back to a "normal" blog visiting schedule, so hopefully you will start to see me coming around more. I write daily as a discipline and outlet. I just don't always get to visit because of time constraints.
    Have a blessed weekend.
