The water lapping against the rocks. The rain clouds peering over my head. Huge rain droplets falling on my head. I get up and move to a table under the awning. This is holy space; a space to rest and take in the amazing awesomeness of God's creation.
Yesterday we hiked; first Copeland Falls; then Calaypso cascades. The mist off the cascades permeates the air. We begin our descent down. It goes so much faster. Even this hard hike doesn't feel like work. There is something so restful about taking in God's glorious masterpieces of creation.
I don't have much cell service when I'm here. That is one of the things I love about this place. I get to learn and not worry about what is happening back home. After class, I sit on the porch, pull out my colored pencils and adult coloring pages. I create and color. It's so restful!
I read the latest book I'm reading and let the words wash over me. A holy rest; full of peace and promise and hope!!
I'm still sitting here. The clouds have parted a little. The cool lime refresher cleanses my palate. The sun is beginning to peak through. I think I'll enjoy this and sit here a little longer.
For it is in this place; in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, that I find my peace; find my rest!!
