Feeling Small

I am currently out West visiting family for Thanksgiving. Yesterday my sister, my six-month old nephew, and I went hiking in the hills of the Bay Area. We reached Inspiration Point and took a moment to appreciate the awesome view below. On the one side were rolling hills of pine trees and plants characteristic of Chapparal ecology. Across the Bay, we could see the Golden Gate Bridge surrounded in mist. While the uniqueness of the Golden Gate Bridge is certainly hard to miss, it was certainly the beauty of God’s works and handicraft that predominated. It was quite a sight to see the juxtaposition of this amazing feat of humankind seem so small in light of the natural beauty around it. I left Inspiration Point feeling humbled and reconnected to the Earth, and to God.
