A Purposeful World

bridal veil falls, washington state

This world is an incredibly beautiful place -- crafted perfectly down to the smallest details by the most skilled Creator. There is something about it that pulls on my heart and calls adventure, adventure, adventure!



I think perhaps my favorite quality of Earth is the diversity. No matter where I wander or where I end up, I am sure to discover something unique -- rolling fields of bright hues, forested mountains, unfathomably deep seas, woods split by sunlit streamers -- it's all so detailed, down to the last pine needle and drop of water.


Whether it be an incredible little detail or a majestic mountain, everything fills me with awe. It fills my lungs and my heart and makes me wonder...

How could this possibly have been a mistake?

  2. PREACH. Thank you for this simple, truthful post:) When we take the time to look at our universe and see how obviously designed it was it fills me with sadness to think of all the people who believe otherwise. Our God is so creative and deserves all the glory :)

  3. Girl you are a legend! Every post of yours is so refreshing. Bringing so much glory to our incredible God. Have a read of Isaiah 61, I'm just loving it at the moment xx
    Oh also, I'm running a Q and A on my blog at the moment, so if you've got any questions that would be great xx

  11. That was a wonderful post, Rachelle :) Just out of curiousity, have you seen the movie 'The Tree of Life'? I have a feeling you may enjoy it. It is a story about God creating the earth, and the strength of love and family. The visuals are absolutely breathtaking and so is the music score. Not to mention the actors of course, It is slightly long, but well worth the watch in my opinion :)

    Looking forward to your next gorgeous photograph,
