While I’ve been away…

Friends, sorry for the weeks of silence. I took a long-overdue vacation with my husband (read: kid-free!!) to South Africa, on the back of a work trip. I needed a break from the laptop, and some time to just spend in God’s creation with my love. We spent most of the week in the Mpumalanga region in South Africa, which is breathtakingly stunning. The irony of God’s creation is sometimes being in the vast expanses of His work is when you feel His presence the most. And that’s what I had, a week of moments that stole my breath, filled my heart, and fed my spirit.

Here are just a few pictures from our trip.

If the last picture was God's Window, this is certainly God's canvas. The most breathtaking view I've ever seen. Blyde River Canyon.

This viewpoint on the Panorama Route is called God's Window. Fitting, isn't it?
