Sorensen’s Family Resort, Hope Valley CA

Fall in the Sierra Nevada mountains of California draws one into intense colors and deeply refreshing air. Meg and I stayed with good friends at Sorensen’s Family resort, located in Hope Valley south of Lake Tahoe. Large meadows at 7000 feet spread out below Carson Pass and the West Fork of the Carson River.  Hiking, fishing, snowshoeing, cross country skiing makes this area a year around outdoor magnet.

Sorensen’s itself offers delightful cabins set amidst aspen trees.  Friendly service and an intimate restaurant made out stay an easy one.  We hiked through gorgeous color, which intensified after a light snowfall on our second night. Despite a two day drive to get there, we would love to do it again.

God is present with us

As fall bursts forth in early October and fades slowly into November, I mark another season that has passed. Winter lies ahead and I am another year older.  Yet God moves with me through the seasons.  He is ageless, eternal; in Him and with Him, I live forever.

 

“Whatever the day, whatever the circumstances, faith tells us the God is present with us. The God who gave us life, sustains it and gives it meaning beyond anything we can imagine in this lifetime. Our life is only the beginning, not the end. God is both in and beyond everything. Leap from doubt to belief and remember that God loves you, delights in you, and yearns for your response of faith in God and in His creation.”  Reuben Job
