Snow capped mountains grab my attention from this spot. It’s breath taking and distracting.  When the sky is cloudless, and the first snow of the season tops the peaks, we are reminded of how extraordinary Alaska truly is – in all of its seasons. Today I let go of a lot of doing to live more like Mary and let go of all the doing, that is so much like Martha.

“He must become greater, I must become less.” John 3:30

Seeing Denali, The Great One, at 20,ooo feet – from over 300 miles away on a day like today certainly is an awe-inspired moment that reminds me of true greatness.  Such unique beauty stands on her own, above all else.  Today I give thanks for all that is good and slow down to see God’s hand in all things around us.
