Thankful Thoughts – Mountains

This week, it was really easy to think of some thankful thoughts to share.

As you might expect, I’m thankful for mountains.

Living in Houston Texas, my family and I don’t get many chances to enjoy mountains.  To be honest, we get a little excited when the land is anything other than flat.  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE my hometown.  There’s a lot to love about Houston. But from time to time, getting to see actual mountains is pretty cool.

I’m downright thankful for the opportunity.

Thankful Thoughts about Mountains.

For the past week, I’ve been surrounded by mountains and the overwhelming amazing beauty of our world.  I’m in awe of what God has created.  Time after time I’ve stared open mouthed in wonder.

Wow.  God made that.

psalm 36_6

I was filled with AWE.

I was filled with WONDER.

I was filled with THANKFULNESS.

psalm 90_2


Psalm 121 NIV

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord watches over you—
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.

The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.

isaiah 55_12


God has been so good to me.  I’m so thankful for our time in the mountains.  It has been an amazing week.  I’ve been blessed beyond measure.  Seeing the majesty of the mountains this week has truly been a gift beyond measure.

What are you thankful for?

I have a passion for encouraging weary worn out mothers to find joy in everyday motherhood and peace in unlikely places. I have two elementary school boys, one nerdy husband, and two cats. I have a strange fascination for bad puns, the color pink, socks, and books. I worry about running out of toilet paper, wine, and chocolate.. I serve an amazing God. I live an ordinary life filled with wonder.

    • We’ve vacationed in Colorado several times. It’s always beautiful and spectacular! I’ve also visited quite a bit of the East Coast – there are beautiful mountains there too!

      These were from my iPhone – I was amazed at how good the photos turned out.

  3. I’m with you. I grew up in St. Louis where it’s pretty flat with a few small hills. I moved to Tennessee to go to college (on a mountain) and I’ve lived in either TN or North Carolina (near the mountains) ever since. They are just awe inspiring. Loved your pictures. Fantastic post!! –Lisa
