Day 1 – Thankful for Yosemite

This is part of a series called 24 Days of Thankfulness. These posts are in RANDOM order, NOT priority order. Each is something I am thankful for leading up to Thanksgiving.

DAY #1: Yosemite

The place where God showed off. The place that without I’d be insane by now because it is where I go to STOP.  It is the most amazing place on earth. It is the location of Yosemite Summit and where I hide from work, from people, and in many ways from myself. When I’m there, I never want to leave. I pretend heaven will be just like it, only bigger, wilder and without trails, stores or automobiles. (and maybe some Indians hootin’ in the distance!)

My iMac screen saver off to the side of my laptop is just random photos from all my trips to Yosemite dropping all day on to the screen, and often I get lost in thought just watching them… until I snap back to the tasks at hand demanding my time and attention. I am so thankful that God chose to create a place like that for people to escape to and marvel in Him and the wonder of His creative ability, and that He still cares for us in the midst of all that timeless beauty!

What are YOU thankful for?
