I’ve been coming to Wallowa, OR starting in the spring of 1982 which was the spring Kathy and I met. Since that time I’ve come back yearly and often several times in a year. I never cease to be amazed at the beauty and solace of the mountains and all that lies therein. Whether the sun is out showing the majestic mountains, the clouds are out dumping rain, the snow is coming down adding to the accumulation from the previous snows; there is a peacefulness which only God understands from His creation. I do love the mountains.
Our world today has so much chaos churning throughout it. Often it weighs heavily right behind the activities of the day making me wonder what will be next? I know that God is present in all of this and none of it is a surprise to Him. His scripture tells us to prepare for the coming of the Lord. All this to say, today I can’t see the majestic mountains. The clouds are bringing rain. However, I know my God reigns for I know what the clouds hide.
No matter the condition of our world, the same God Who created us is the one Who will someday deliver us from all of it. Yes, we must live in the chaos, support what we know to be right; but,”… keep my eyes lifted to the hills from whence cometh my help.” Psalms 121:1.
