fire + ice

saturday, i ventured out to another ice sculpture festival! the sculptures at this one were bigger & much more intricate than last week's festival. this specific event is the same one i attended last year. always a good (yet cold!) time.
yesterday consisted of the most beautiful sunset i have seen in awhile. i was in the car on about a 40 minute drive back home so i witnessed the whole display & snapped plenty of pictures. the grand finale occurred right as we reached our destination so i had to snap a few more!
waffle house in all it's splendor. =)
the colors almost reminded me of fire, hence the title of this post.
later that evening i read spurgeon's evening devotional which said, "We must not cease to wonder at the great marvels of our God. It would be very difficult to draw a line between holy wonder & real worship...Let your soul lose itself in wonder, for wonder is in this way a very practical emotion."

 i stand in wonder.

Wonderful pictures Maggi, especially of the sunset. What amazes me is how the colors change every few minutes, and the whole thing doesn't last long. We serve such a glorious God!
