Anthony captures "Indescribable" at Yavapai Point
How lovely on the mountains are the feet of him
who brings good news... Isaiah 52:7 NASB
You can't describe it.
No words can capture.
Grand must have meant something else when the canyon was named.
Because grand is just so... just so... grand.
This is bigger than grand. MUCH bigger.
And now that I think about it the word canyon doesn't describe it very well either.
I've been to canyons before.
And this is so... so... well, bigger than a canyon.
How is it that light can hit one part without hitting another part?
How is it that it can be clear blue sky and as you look across the abyss you see rain.
And then blue sky behind that?
Why is it so deceiving that you would think you could reach the river in one day.
But most would die trying to do that.
Humongous? No, that is not the word.
How can the weather be so different from the rim to the river?
How can there be so many layers and colors of rock?
And we can look at it all day.
And we can look at it from different viewpoints.
And we can hike down.
And slowly hike back up.
And so I have come to the determination that it reminds me most of God.
Scripture Posted at Hermit's Rest, Grand Canyon
Sing to God,
sing praises to his name;
lift up a song to him
who rides upon the clouds;
his name is the LORD,
exult before him!
Psalm 68:4 RSV
I choose Psalm 68:4 for my Siesta Scripture Memory Verse # 17.
