This morning, I wanted to take you someplace to remind you how beautiful the world can be. Even when there’s heartache, somewhere a rainbow shimmers in a dark sky. Yesterday, we drove to the Rocky Mountains. My camera’s very old and not fancy, but look at this!

And just in front of this rainbow, a herd of elk leisurely feast.

And back down the trail, a waterfall spits and roars down the rocks.
You don’t think about laundry or dishes or sickness or sadness when you’re on the mountain. At least I didn’t. I sprawled out and took a deep breath.

My daughters climb and explore. A friend hands my oldest a pair of binoculars, and she suddenly becomes quiet and thoughtful.
Sometimes, we need to go places that make us still and thoughtful as we contemplate the beauty of the earth.
