What is Not to Love?

Rainbow on stone in Minnie’s Gulch, originally uploaded by Shirley Buxton.

Near the end of Minnie’s Gulch only a short distance off the main trail is a small waterfall. Lavelta and I hiked up and took in the magnificent views from that vantage point. We were so close to the main fall that water sprayed on us, and I had to be careful with my camera lens.

On the lower part of the massive rock over which flows the stream of water I spied this rainbow, no doubt refracted light from the water. It was splendid.

“I will love thee, O LORD, my strength. The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.”

What is not to love about our magnificent Saviour? He is my center, my core, my essence; and with all my heart, I love Him. I love Him when I am home, when I am in church, and when I am traveling. I love Him when I am in need, when I’m afraid, when I’m confused, when I’m sick. I love Him too, when I stand in such a place as this and draw in generous drafts of the wondrous beauty of this our world.

What’s not to love about such a Master?
