I lift up my eyes to the hills—
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
My mind mused often on Psalm 121 as I gazed at the ever-changing, always majestic, mountain view from the deck of our rental house on the side of a mountain in Tennessee last week. We had a wonderful week that included time with all three of our children and time to hike, as well as to rest, read, paint, and ponder. Rather than retelling the story of our time there, I’m posting photos of my trip journal pages, so you can join with me in my enjoyment of the mountains. These are not polished paintings and carefully selected words, but rather my on-the-spot musings and doodlings from the deck or by the side of waterfalls and other places in the park.
