The River

Looking west over the Little Spokane River (Rutter Parkway)...

Looking east...

The spirit catches me in the oddest moments, like when I drive my car, walk to an appointment, or pass a field on the way to something else. Just this evening, I was driving to Wellpinit when I crossed a bridge overlooking the Little Spokane River. I glanced toward the west and saw the sun setting behind a thin layer of fog. The beauty in that moment literally compelled me to stop the car and go back for a second look.

Sometimes I think God paints the most amazing scenery just hoping someone will stop long enough to notice. Beauty is a wonderful treatment for anxiety, depression, or any other life stress.
