I took the above photo while on a trip to Hot Springs, AR with a friend. That is Lake Hamilton at sunrise. It was a very relaxing and renewing few days.
My friend has been a Southern Baptist missionary in Africa most of her adult life. She and her husband were home on furlough when she and I took this get away trip. It was fabulous! We agreed to have supper together and enjoy one another’s company in the evenings, but the mornings and afternoons we retreated away alone to seek the Lord.
We took time to have our own person devotions and quiet time with the Lord in the mornings. She would go to one part of the house we stayed in and I went to the other. We seldom saw each other in the morning. We usually took breaks at the same time for lunch so we shared our lunch meals together. Then we would retreat back to our personal quiet space until evening. During this time we would seek God’s guidance for particular areas of our lives and work on goal and plans.
It was funny that every morning we each walked around the neighborhood, but neither of us realized the other was walking until we talked about our days. I’m telling you, we seldom saw each other in the mornings. Of course, the first morning I slept in (I won’t say how late – I was ashamed of myself). That must have meant that I needed the rest, right?
I’m telling you, I would love to do this a couple of times a year. It was great to spend uninterrupted time with Jesus and to pull away from the business of life to focus on Him and His direction for my life.
When I looked back over my photos from the trip, this one really caught my attention. I was reminded that we truly are without excuse. After all, the heavens declare the glory of God. So I looked up the verse, added it to my photo and found canvasdiscount.com to have the canvas made.
I love how that one turned out so much that I had several other photos printed on canvas. If you want to check it out for yourself, just click on the link below. Plus recieve 15% off your order of $30 or more if you use this link:
