Morning in the Mountains

We rose last Thursday morning to find this beautiful landscape in the mountains of North Carolina. A chilly morning, a foggy haze, and a warm cup of coffee made for a peaceful beginning to a weekend filled with delightful fellowship, encouraging and challenging messages, and rejoicing with many about the great work of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The Gospel-Centered Marriages for a Glorious Church conference was a grand adventure! Photos and notes from the conference are coming soon… stay updated here.

“Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands. Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her, that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the Word, so that He might present the church to Himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.”
—Ephesians 5:24-27

    Good Morning Emily,

    I am blessed to wake up every morning in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina. How exciting to see your post!

    Each new day here brings something stunning to behold. Our mountains often remind me of the protection our Heavenly Father sets ’round about us. It is as if somehow I’m tucked down in a fold of His care, and the peace that brings to my life is pure joy.

    Blessings ~ Kathleen

    *sighs* Those mountains are breathtakingly beautiful! I especially like the last picture with the mist hovering over the valley.
