Mountain in the Middle

It's Majestic Marvel Monday! Since Mondays can often be one of the tougher days of the week and for many, it means back to the daily grind, what better way to put a smile on your face than to marvel at His majestic wonders! I absolutely love photography! It is both a creative outlet and passion that brings me joy. So, each Monday, I will post at least one photo of God’s majestic marvels I’ve captured. See and be in awe of His creations and beauty! 

I snapped this Mountain in the Middle at one of our favorite spots in Alaska. It’s a beautiful campground with an incredible view. Just a stop off the highway, with a large frozen lake, and grandiose mountains, there are few visitors in the winter. We often have this place all to ourselves, making it extremely quiet and peaceful. This place of solitude is where I can really feel the presence of God.

“Hear this, O Job; stop and consider the wondrous works of God. -Job 37:14

Until we landed in Alaska, I had never seen so many eagles in my entire life. In fact, I’m not sure I had even seen one. But, in just a year and a half, my family and I have spotted more than a hundred bald eagles. About thirty of these were this weekend alone.

On Friday, sitting in the parking lot of Petco, my daughter peered into the sky and counted eleven bald eagles circling above. The day prior, we saw several more, including a golden eagle sitting high up in a tree looking intently for his prey. And while I patiently waited for that golden eagle to take flight, I was able to quickly capture this handsome guy soaring proudly overhead with his Wings Spread.

Elevation Sunset

We set out this past Saturday on a little day trip to check out a small town we had never been to. Feeling a sense of adventure, we figured it was time to see what this small town of Hope, Alaska, was all about. That’s right! The town is actually called Hope. With all the challenges we’ve come face to face with lately, it seemed especially fitting to explore this old gold rush town, but maybe not in the dead of winter. Our trip was stopped short, due to a 10-degree temperature drop and an extremely icy highway separating us from the our destination.

And while we were disappointed that we did not land in Hope, Alaska, this last weekend, God kept us safe. The town we hoped to reach was just that-a town. We know that our real hope is in the Lord and there will never be anything that can separate us from His love.

Heading back, I captured Elevation Sunset. As the sun dropped behind the peaks, hues of blue colored the mountains and shades of gray were swirled in the cloudy sky above.

No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. -Romans 8:39

It was my husband who first spotted these two trees intertwined this past fall. And since it’s the day of love, I thought it was the perfect nature pic to post. I call it Limb Lovers Embrace.

Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. -1 Peter 4:8

Lone and Charred

This past weekend, we took a risk, a turn down a mystery road leading to a beautiful overlook. Amongst a backdrop of several snowy peaks, there was this tree, Lone and Charred, standing after a terrible forest fire. It was one of the strong ones, a survivor.

Maybe you have been thrown into the fiery flames of life’s circumstances and you too, are a survivor. Let this be a reminder that God can still create beauty out of your life. Your story isn’t over yet!

“Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver;
I have tested you in the furnace of affliction. -Isaiah 48:10

Eagle Eye Up High

Going stir-crazy again with cabin fever, we headed out for another Sunday drive. To our surprise, we happened upon at least twenty bald eagles within a few minutes time span. My husband estimated thirty. There were more than ten circling above us in the sky with their wings stretched out soaring, and several in the trees perched on branches of various trees. I caught this Eagle Eye Up High, as we sped past.

Tonight, when I searched for a Bible verse to go along with this image, the one tugging at my heart was one of my favorites-

but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. -Isaiah 40:31

Maybe you need this reminder, like I do. Looking back on the day, and how weary I was feeling earlier, I can’t help but wonder if those eagles were there to remind me that my hope is in the Lord and to not take my focus off of Him. For He is the one who will renew my strength.

It was a very gray kinda day in Alaska, yesterday. How it reminded me so, of back home in Portland, where the skies are drab and the rain drizzles constantly. The temperatures warmed up, and the roads thawed making for a nice Sunday drive, however. And although I didn’t catch any sun or blue skies, these Mountains Posed for me.

The mountains will bring peace to the people, And the little hills, by righteousness.
-Psalm 72:3

Alaska is truly God’s country and a photographer’s paradise. There’s no denying it. Even if I can only give you teeny glimpses of our Creator’s magnificent beauty in my photos, that is my hope.

Today’s photo, Sundown Sunday, was a shot I snapped as the sun was setting behind the peaks, leaving a golden glow in the sky. A bald eagle screeched moments before and took off in the opposite direction flying over the icy cold river. Unfortunately, I wasn’t quick enough to capture it. It was a beautiful sight, however.

For the Lord is the great God, the great King above all gods. In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him. -Psalm 95:3-4

Wispy Winterland was an image I shot while riding shotgun yesterday on our Sunday drive. With a little too much cabin fever, I needed a change of scenery-to take in our Creator’s beauty that we are so blessed to be surrounded by. Getting out-even for a short drive, does wonders to combat going stir-crazy during these long, frozen winters.


The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. -Psalm 19:1

Peak-a-Blue Mountain was snapped earlier last year when the freeze had melted-all but what was left on the mountaintops. As we get deeper into our Alaskan winter, with at least four more months to go, I long to put away our snow gear. The warmth of spring and summer can’t come quick enough!
