The sunrise image below of the sports facility at Eastern Oregon University is a definite stretch, but I thought, wow, God’s light in the darkness, whether in a sunrise or in a light shining in the darkness, does last forever. The scene below will disappear, and yet—What a wonderful reminder Paul gives us that there is so much more beyond the temporary, transient lives we live now. I pray we do recognize our spirits are being renewed daily!
Designated a National Park in 1910, Glacier’s million acres of pristine ecosystem is the crown jewel of the American Rockies–although its Canadian counterpart is equally spectacular. From NE Oregon, the drive takes a long day. Meg and I arrived in the early evening. After checking into the KOA at West Glacier, we traveled into the park, and were rewarded with rich light on McDonald Lake, and intense alpen glow on the high peaks as the sun set. The next day was drizzling, but the overcast created its own saturated colors as we drove the Going to the Sun highway.
