I have the privilege of driving across the Lake Murray Dam almost every day during the week. I’ve written a blog about this before, describing the peace and joy the beautiful views crossing that dam bring me. But a recent journey crossing that incredible dam literally took my breath away with its glorious view.
The pictures will speak for themselves. They are untouched – no editing at all. It was another extremely long day of teaching, one that started at the usual 5 a.m. After an after-school faculty meeting, I was finally headed home. My eyes caught a glimpse of a gorgeous sunset to my right. Its beauty called out to me, but I had to keep my eyes on the road. I carried out my usual habit of rolling down the window, holding up my phone and just clicking away as I kept my eyes on the road. I had no idea of the immense beauty that was before me. In person, I did not get the opportunity to take in the heavenly view, but I was blessed with having captured it on my phone. I made it across the dam, got hung up in traffic, and while stopped, took the moment to look over my pictures…WOW. Words could not describe what I saw. My heart, mind and soul instantly saw, felt, and thought of angel wings watching over me.
See what you will. No matter what you see in the pictures, I know you will see something breathtaking. I will forever treasure these pictures because for me it represents a beauty that is indescribable on many levels, a reminder of the beauty of the world, a reminder of how blessed I am to see this beauty and appreciate it… a reminder of my angels watching over me.
