Grand Teton National Park - "Into the World as a Light"

 


Then Jesus cried out, "When a man believes in me, he does not believe in me only, but in the one who sent me.  When he looks at me, he sees the one who sent me.  I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.

John 12:44-46

Grand Tetons - "I am the Way and the Truth and the Life"


 Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through me.  If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well.  From now on, you do know him and have seen him."

John 14:6

Oxbow Bend - “Wipe every tear from their eyes"

 


And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Look!  God's dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them.  they will be his people and god himself will be with them and be their God.  He will wipe every tear from their eyes.  There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.

He who was seated on the throne said, "I am making everything new!"  Then he said, "Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true."

Revelation 21:3-5

He will wipe every tear from their eyes.  There will be no more death or mourn

Great and Unsearchable Things

 



Call to me, and I will answer you, and tell you great and unsearchable things which you do not know.

Jeremiah 33:3

Jackson Hole - I Am the Gate



 I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved.  They will come in and go out, and  find pasture.  The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;  I have come that they have life, and have it to the full.

Oxbow Bend - He will endure as Long as the Sun...


He will endure as long as the sun,
as long as the moon, through all generations.
He will be like rain falling on a mown field,
like showers watering he earth,
In his days the righteous will flourish;
prosperity will abound till the moon is no more.

He will rule from sea to sea
and from the River to the ends of the earth.
The desert tribes will bow before him
and his enemies will lick the dust.

The kings of Tarshish and of distant shores
will bring tribute to him;
the kings of Sheba and Seba will present him gifts,
All kings will bow down to him
and all nations will serve him.

For he will deliver the needy who cry out,
the afflicted who have no one to help.
He will take pity on the weak and the needy
and save the needy from death.
He will rescue them from oppression and violence,
for precious is their blood in his sight.

Psalms 71:5-14 NIV

The Earth is My Sister



God created Heaven and Earth and God created us.  Creation is interconnected and is a mystery and so is death but there are clues and promises that we are children of God.  Romans 8:16  "The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God..."   Matthew 5:9 "Blessed are the peacemakers:  for they shall be called the children of God."  Galatians 3:26 "For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus."

Far Over the Mountains





“He loved mountains, or he had loved the thought of them marching on the edge of stories brought from far away; but now he was borne down by the insupportable weight of Middle-earth. He longed to shut out the immensity in a quiet room by a fire.”


― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings

Snake River




“Faeries, come take me out of this dull world,
For I would ride with you upon the wind,
Run on the top of the dishevelled tide,
And dance upon the mountains like a flame.”
 
― W.B. Yeats, The Land of Heart's Desire


What Are Men to Rocks and Mountains?









“What are men to rocks and mountains?”
― Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice    

Call of the Mountains





The mountains are calling and I must go.

Teton's Call of the Wild


It was an extraordinary visit to Jackson Hole Wyoming and The Grand Teton National Park.  I tried to give as much detail about my visit for those who are interested in visiting the park.  One thing I need to mention is the smell of sage is all over the meadows.  It is a wonderful scent and the wildflowers were endless.  The fresh cool air, mountain rivers and lakes, wildlife, the forest, the call of the wild is beckoning me to come back and I will again and again. 

Jackson Lake Lodge A Surreal Dining Experience


We had lunch at Jackson Lake Lodge and the view was surreal.  I have been at many restaurants where you get views of the ocean, beach, city lights, mountain rivers, etc. but we had a magnificent panoramic view!  There is nothing like it that I have ever experience.
