When I lived in Marin County, California, I loved the wheelchair accessible trail at the summit of Mount Tamalpias. My friend Valerie took me up there for one last wheelchair hike in July of 2002, just before I moved to the Greater Boston Area to marry John.
I still remember thrilling as we looked down at a hawk in flight, as well as admiring the summer flowers and grasses that cascaded down the mountainside below us. As we savored the beauty, Valerie mused, “I don’t see how anyone can deny that God created all of this.” I had to agree. Mount Tamalpias always left me awed by God’s variety in His creation. I guess that’s why I loved it so.
Those wonderful memories of Mount Tam flood back as I listen to the simple hymn that I’m posting today. God’s creation indeed causes me to praise the Lord for making such a splendid universe. Even more, it inspires me to adore Him.
