God's Handiwork

"God never wrought miracles to convince atheism,
because His ordinary works convince it."
--Francis Bacon

His ordinary works. Traveling through these western states, we are in awe of each display of these works! The bus has had quite a workout truckin' up and down mountain roads these past couple days. [smile] Praise the Lord-- after all the mechanic work it has been running strong!

This afternoon we drove through the Columbia River Gorge. Wow!! The rugged cliffs, crashing waterfalls, delicate wild flowers, and towering trees all come together for a breathtaking and unforgettable view.

As we were a little ahead of schedule, Daddy opted for a quick stop at Multnomah Falls. We piled out and enjoyed a few moments of taking in the cool misty sights. Here are a few of the pictures Bethany captured ---


"His work is honorable and glorious,
And His righteousness endures forever."
Psalm 111:3

And now we pile back into the bus for a few more hours as the trip continues!

Yep, gotta chime in again: fantasic photos from Bethany!

I like the pictures so much, I have quite a few of them saved on my PC. (Not quite sure why-- maybe in case the Internet ever goes away... :D)

Anyhow, thanks for sharing your good times, and the awesome sights. And it was nice to see Caleb again too!

Peace. --Jacob

That is a wonderful picture of your mom and dad. I hope they manage to keep those smiles most of the time - even after all the bus trials and trying to coordinate the activities of 13 children on the road. They are an amazing couple with a very special family. It doesn't come easy (but they look like they are holding up pretty well.)

I wish I would have thought to have written earlier. When I saw the pictures at the Golden Gate Bridge it reminded me of one of the most fascinating places. Not far from the south entrance in a beautiful park left over from an earier worlds fair, is a place called the Exploratorium. It is one of the neatest hands on science museums around. Even if Science isn't "your thing", I think it would be impossible not to spend several hours here and not completely enjoy the experience. Maybe on your next trip.

Prayers and wishing all of you well
