Bigger than Any Mountain

Bigger than all the shadows that fall across my path,

God is bigger than any mountain that I can or can not see.

He's bigger than all the confusion, bigger than anything;

God is bigger than any mountain that I can or can not see.

He's bigger than all the giants of pain and unbelief;

God is bigger than any mountain that I can or can not see.

He's bigger than any discouragement, bigger than anything;

My God is bigger than any mountain that I can or can not see.

He's bigger than all my problems, bigger than all my fears;

God is bigger than any mountain that I can or can not see.

Oh, yes, he's bigger than all my question, bigger than anything;

God is bigger than any mountain that I can or can not see.

This is one of the favorite choir songs we've sung in the last few years, primarily because of our family situations which have been mountainous in size at times. We live in the shadow of the Rockies. I lift up my eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help comes from the Lord. I'm not a hiker, but I love watching them in the various times of the day, the shading, the coloring. God is the master Artist!

My husband is a hiker and a photographer. Two weeks ago I posted one of his photographic masterpieces for Wordless Wednesday. Today I'm sharing some of his hiking shots. He loves hiking and photography so much - he can tell you every rock, every flower, where he was when he took the picture. Enjoy the beauty.

Before I sign off - GOOD NEWS!! I finished computing grade point averages this morning at 11:14 a.m.! Well, maybe not exactly 11:14, but close enough! What a great feeling - 150 files later, I'm finally done! Now I just have to get the faculty to do their part in reading them all.

Susie said...

So glad you finished computing the GPA's. I 'm sure that's a huge relief..
What absolutely magnificent photos! How lucky you are to live surrounded by such beauty!

Tammy said...

I just cannot imagine living near such natural beauty as this!!

Praying for your Prodigal said...

Stunning! I want to live where you live! How beautiful! Who could look at these photos and not believe there is a Creator!!!!

Thanks for taking the time to upload them for us to appreciate!

And---congrat's on getting those files done! Phew! Breathing a sigh of relief with you. And to think--silently sitting in the midst of each file is a young heart waiting to hear if they've been accepted....or not. Another Phew!

But seriously--those photos are amazing!

Kristen said...

Yep. That's my Dad! I think we ought to compile a bunch of his nature shots and make a calendar out of them. Just for us. You can do that y'know. :-)

So glad you're done with all your files. What a load off!

Barb said...

11:14, huh? Not that you were watching the clock of anything, right? LOL Good for you! What a relief that must be.

Your husband is an awesome photographer. Every square inch of wall space would be covered with his photos if it were me. He really captures the beauty of Colorado in these photos - almost as good as being there.

I will NOT show those pics to Mulletman. He had have us packed up and on our way there before I would be able to know what had happened!

Nancy said...

Job finished... what a great feeling! Now relax and enjoy. I love the pictures. You live in a beautiful spot. Have a great day.

PEA said...

Oh Dawn, you tell that hubby of yours that his pictures leave me breathless...they are absolutely beautiful!! You certainly are very lucky to be living so near these majestic mountains. I remember when I was in Vancouver, BC, I was mesmerized by the Rockies!! Yeaaaaaaaa you for finishing up the GPAs...great work:-) xox

He sure has an eye for finding the angle that gets the best photo. So many times I have looked at some of my scenery photos from vacations and said, "yep, that's a mountain", because the depth perception just didn't quite make it. These are beautiful, as usual.

Linds said...

Hi Dawn.... the photos are amazing! I want to go and walk in your mountains too. Thanks for visiting. You have one amazing family. Hopefully you will get to see Switzerland one day too!

Tammy said...

I love these words...and the pictures your husband took are so beautiful. How blessed you are to live in the shadow of the Rockies!

And I just scrolled down to read the good medical news report! Praise the Lord...great news, Dawn!

I just hopped over from Susie's Space to say hello. Love your site and all the pictures that your husband has taken. He has a real gift! Also love the verse you quoted, My help comes from the Lord! Have been reading through some of your older posts and will continue to stop by. Thanks for sharing your life.
