“From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the Lord is to be praised. The Lord is exalted over all the nations, his glory above the heavens. Who is like the Lord our God, the One who sits enthroned on high, who stoops down to look on the heavens and the earth?” (Psalm 113:3-6 NIV)
When my wife and I decided to purchase our home here in the mountains of North Carolina, perhaps the greatest selling point for me was this western view of the mountains.
At the time, I don’t recall anticipating the splendor that view would reveal at sunset each night and the countless moments of wonder and worship those sunsets would inspire. Sometimes they take my breath away. Every evening they draw me nearer to my Creator and give me a taste of his glory.
“Nature never taught me that there exists a God of glory and of infinite majesty. I had to learn that in other ways. But nature gave the word glory a meaning for me. I still do not know where else I could have found one.” – C.S. Lewis
