A Glimpse of Yosemite

No temple made with human hands can compare with Yosemite. – John Muir

After finding a winter special for a lodge near Yosemite National Park, we hoped for snow. But as February neared and California’s fourth year of drought continued, we knew our plans for snowshoeing and snowballs probably wouldn’t happen. We’d go anyway.

Driving north on Hwy 41, we wouldn’t see most of the nearly 1200 square miles of Yosemite’s natural beauty, but hoped to see a few highlights.

The sun shone brightly through tall trees and bounced off the Merced River flowing on our left, after we entered the park and passed Mariposa Grove. My eye caught green sequoias, blue sky, and towering tree trunks as we drove along Wawona Road.

Read the rest of “A Glimpse of Yosemite,” which goes live at Tweetspeak Poetry on Friday, August 14 at 8 a.m. EST here…Thanks.

My next post, “What propels your faith forward” will go live on either August 17 or 18th…hopefully.

I pray you experience a deep Sabbath rest and trust in God’s goodness and care for you this weekend.
