Romans 1: 18-20
18For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. 20For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.
Redwoods in Jedediah State Park, Crescent City, California.
The majesty of these trees was breath-taking, and their size was intimidating. Everything around them was lush,and green. In this picture you are looking at a roadway and not a walking path. Just incredible!! As we drove through this sanctuary, the fingerprints of the Creator were apparent. It was like stepping into the outer court, and knowing that the KING was very present. My family is never quiet..but we were all in awe of what we could see but not comprehend. I don’t understand how anyone could look at this and not believe that there is a God, and not want to know the One who planned and planted each one, and grew them to such heights, and widths. My heart was applauding HIS great work.
Upon leaving the redwood forrest, we came to the coast in Crescent City..like leaving the outer court and moving closer still to the throne room. Just speechless in what I saw today, and thankful that I had the chance to see it.
(seals swimming between these boulders..amazing)

What an amazing drive. It really is hard to find words to describe the beauty of it all.
Praise god for His creations and for porviding us the means to be able to see them!!!
You hit the nail on the head, Darla. How is it possible to behold the beauty, the majesty all round and not bow down to the Creator of all?
Michelle- I can’t! HE overwhelms me, and I stand in awe!
Oh Darla! You just made me slightly homesick! Coming from California there is only a few things I miss…….the ocean and those awesome tree’s!
Dear Princess, enjoy this time. Take it all in and soak it up! I know you are beginning to feel a little blue as Saturday is approaching WAY too fast, but the memories you have made will last a lifetime. I am praising God that He allowed this awesome time of fellowship between your families!
I had the opportunity to see the redwoods as a teenager. My folks packed us in the car and we drove all the way down the Oregon coast highway into Crescent City. I was absolutely awestruck by them. Did you see the cathedral tree? That one was my favorite and I had a postcard of it tacked on my wall for years.
My wife and I absolutely live for our visits to the coast. There is no other place where I feel so connected to God and His glory. We will probably end up retiring there somewhere after the kids are grown.
I am so glad you were able to enjoy the splendor of Oregon.
Oregon Coast….my favorite place in the whole world. Brings tears to my eyes, these pictures. 😉 I love it. I am SO GLAD you are enjoying it too!
