A few weeks ago when Izzy's teacher announced in embarrassment that she had never been to Yosemite, I tried not to let my face reveal that I shared the same dirty little secret. As a native Californian, I had never been either. So, when I spied an amazing Groupon deal on Yosemite lodging I begged Pete to give it a try. Not to mention the fact that we had been looking for a way to thank my father-in-law for his tireless work over the past month. Pete agreed and we were able to book the dates we desired hoping it would be a great opportunity to keep our minds off the pending test results.
Although it didn't end up to be the relaxing time I had hoped it would be, we did enjoy our time away. And I was left with two very intense thoughts as I gazed in awe at the infamous El Capitan.
1. Nothing is too big for God. As I stood in amazement looking at the beauty around me it was not difficult to fear our Father. If His hands are capable of creating such beauty, the surely He can handle our situation.
2. We need to live every day as if the pending test results are going to come back clear. This situation should not be an opportunity to wallow in self-pitty or disbelief. We need to take control and move forward. This is an opportunity to prove to our Savior that we trust in Him completely; believing He can work a miracle.
If you haven't been to Yosemite, I urge you to go. It's stunning!!!
