God’s mindfulness and relationship with us

As I hiked on the Pacific Crest Trail in the Norse Peak Wilderness of Washington state this past week, I was deeply humbled by the infinitude of God’s Creation and His relationship to us. In the billions of galaxies with their billions of stars, I am scarcely a mere blade a grass. Whether I live one day, or one hundred years, my life is not even an eye blink of eternity.  Yet God knows me, and each one of us. The whole Biblical revelation tells us that this omniscient God of this mind boggling vast universe loves each of us with an infinite love. “God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.” Romans 5:8. God’s greatness is certainly in the majesty of his infinite creation, but His greatness is equally and  awesomely shown in His justice and mercy and mindfulness to us, His mere mortals.

Seeing the wonder: the Pacific Crest Trail in the mountains of southern California

During the days after my photo workshop at the annual Trail Fest gathering of the Pacific Crest Trail Association at Big Bear Lake, I enjoyed exploring the Pacific Crest in the San Bernardino and San Gabriel mountains.
