Morgan Lake sits above La Grande, in Union County OR. Although the road up there is steep, it is only a fifteen minute drive to reach it. Few people visit it in the winter, so the tranquility is always refreshing. Late afternoon light and sunsets are exquisite.
A ten minute drive takes me to Morgan Lake, above La Grande, OR. It sits in a high prairie, so the afternoon sun sets unblocked by the hills. I love to walk here year round. Each season brings it own mood. Winter’s late afternoon sun is warm and rich, filled with serene mystery.
“You are present, Eternal God, in every moment of my life, in the daily tasks and the swirl and seeming chaos of world events. Help me then to be aware of your presence and responsive to your purpose.” Evelyn Underhill
During these busy times of “doing” Christmas, may we all find moments to simply breathe and be the infinite Love that came to earth so many generations ago, yet still is present and moving in us today.
“Come to us, Holy and Infinite God. Expand our small hearts to make room for your unlimited love and reign in all human hearts as the Prince of Peace.” Evelyn Underhill.
