He fills my life with good things

Psalm 103

A psalm of David.

Let all that I am praise the Lord;
    with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name.
Let all that I am praise the Lord;
    may I never forget the good things he does for me.
He forgives all my sins
    and heals all my diseases.
He redeems me from death
    and crowns me with love and tender mercies.
He fills my life with good things.
    My youth is renewed like the eagle‚Äôs!

Sometimes in the early morning hours when I wake up and worries keep my mind from sleep, I let this Psalm pour over me. I relax, and know He is with me, and with all of us.

The second day at Sperry Chalet. Hiking to the Sperry Glacier

One of the greatest day hikes one can experience heads up four miles  and 1500 feet from Sperry Chalet,  over Comeau Pass into the high boulder and lake expanse below Sperry Glacier.  The views of of the massive, magnificent back country of Glacier National Park sweep the eyes up into infinity.

However, the journey up there is most memorable.  The trail switches back through six levels of beauty–musical waterfalls and streams of multiple sizes, wildflowers that call the eye to linger, animals like mountain goats, marmots, pikas, ptarmigan, rocks of incredible sizes, shapes, and colors.

Coming back down, Meg and I simply meandered, trying as best possible to extend the day and intensify our memories.

Can you find the ptarmigan that Meg is hiking past?

The beargrass was everywhere!
