Beauty and Wonder: Places in the Heart

Every Friday I join the challenge to write for five minutes on a prompt given by Kate Motaung. Visit this inspiring community by clicking here. Today’s prompt is: BEAUTY

Great are the works of the Lord, studied by all who delight in them. Full of splendor and majesty is his work, and his righteousness endures forever. Psalm 111: 2-3

The beauty of God’s creation can be seen all around the world. I have been fortunate to travel across the United States and to foreign countries. Taiwan, Guatemala, Israel and Finland have unique and wondrous features that point to our Creator.

I have traveled to many places, but one place still holds a special place in my heart. The raw beauty of the Keweenaw Peninsula draws me back year after year. My grandparents lived there, and every summer my family spent a couple weeks or more in this place  bordered  by  Lake   Superior.

Lake Superior

After I married, I took my children to the Keweenaw Peninsula, almost every summer. I love to be on the shore of Lake Superior with the waves making a rhythm of sound that fills the air. I have a heartfelt attachment to this place.

The cross of Christ has a raw beauty.   Jesus  completed  the work of salvation on the cross and redeemed me. This emblem of Jesus’  sacrifice  reminds me of his great love.

  1. Lovely to visit you today from FMF. There are so many beautiful places on this earth and so many beautiful things. I moved to Michigan this summer. I hope to visit Keweenaw Penninsula some time. It must have quite the heart pull for you.

    Visiting from #61 today.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Thank you for this lovely post! Even though I have never been to Keweenaw Peninsula, your description & the picture makes me think that I, too, would love to visit there! More than any beautiful place on earth, though, the Lord Jesus is the Most Beautiful! Thank you for pointing others to His beauty!
