A Bluebell Bellflower & the Rocks and Waves of Lake Superior

“Grandma, come see the blue flowers I found.”

I followed my granddaughter along a rocky path, as waves pounded the shore of Lake Superior. A light wind brushed against my face. The leaves on the birch trees rustled gently.

There they were, bluebells, growing in a crack between the rocks. God created the majesty of Lake Superior and the delicate beauty of the blue flowers—setting them side by side.

I was so blessed to spend time at a favorite park with the grandchildren—exploring the rugged coast of this great lake. It was time to pause and take in God’s creative power.  It was a break from the news of sad and   violent events taking place in our country and throughout the world.

The Psalms come to mind and the beautiful rhythm of faith displayed in the words of the Psalms. We read heart wrenching prayers and confessions. We are instructed to spend time in the Word. Still, the Psalmist takes time to pause and observe God’s power and sovereignty. He sees God’s majesty in nature giving him the glory.

Psalm 93

The Lord reigns, he is robed in majesty;
The Lord is robed in majesty
and is armed with strength.
The world is firmly established;
it cannot be moved.
Your throne was established long ago;
You are from all eternity.

The seas have lifted up, O Lord,
the seas have lifted up their voice;
The seas have lifted up their pounding waves.
Mightier than the thunder of the great waters,
mightier than the breakers of the sea—
the Lord on high is mighty.

Your statutes stand firm;
Holiness adorns your house
For endless days, O Lord.

  1. Carol,
    I love “the Lord reigns” – over all – bluebells, world problems, our lives.
    Thanks for linking to Word of God Speak.

  2. We have bluebells similar to those here in Montana. There are so many different kinds, the ones I grew up with in the south are little clusters of flowers on a stem. Such beauty our heavenly Father created. Thank you for sharing with Thankful Thursdays, I hope to see you again next week.

  3. Beautiful, Carol. It’s so important to remain rooted in His Word and to remember His faithfulness during times like these. Thank you for sharing with us!

  4. What a great place to explore, reflect and be thankful as well as enjoy time with your grandchild. I love the find of the bluebells in the rocks … such a contrast.

  5. What a beautiful find between the rocks of this lake! I love the line that his statues stand firm! Needed to hear that today!
    Thank you much for sharing these beautiful views with SEASONS, Carol! Have a lovely week and hope to see you soon, for what you have to see, is significant to share with others:)
