God's creation

Chapel of the Transfiguration
Grand Teton National Park
Jackson Hole, Wyoming




Churches come in all shapes and sizes, but this one may be my all-time favorite!
Built in 1925, with it's log pews, and large picture window of the "Cathedral Group" of The Grand Tetons, it connects me to The Almighty God like no other.   Nature.   All things Beautiful!!

I hope during this Christmas Season, amongst the shopping and parties, you can take some time to sit quietly in the midst of God's creation.

This sketch was our 2012 Christmas Card and included this poem:

These things make life worthwhile to me;
A sunset sky, a maple tree,
A mountain standing grim and gray,
Against the sky line far away;
A baby's laugh, a summer breeze,
A roadway winding 'neath the trees;
A friend to trust, a book to read,
And work which meets some human need.
And through it all, a sense of God
Lifting my soul above the sod, 
The hope and peace which He can give - 
These make it worth my while to live.
