the grand canyon – oh, my god…

“Oh my God…”

Those were literally the words that came out of my mouth couple days ago as my family and I soaked in the majestic beauty of a sunset at Grand Canyon.

Minhee and I are both aware how blessed we are to have this time – not only with our children but also with one another. Honestly, I’m not sure how if I’ll ever get to take our whole family on a 10 week cross country drive and exploration again. While the first two weeks haven’t necessary been “restful” with three kids doing their kid thing in the back, we’ve had some really precious moments of family bonding and creating memories.

By far, the most special moment was soaking in our visit to several national parks including this trip to the Grand Canyon. We grabbed a great spot (a bit too close to the ledge for Minhee’s comfort) to witness another example of God’s amazing creation.

I wish I had more profound words that came across my mind but I simply thought

Oh my God. How magnificent you are…

again and again…

I last visited Grand Canyon about 17 years ago and while I hope it doesn’t take me another 17 years, who knows what the future holds. I’m trying to live neither in the past or too far into the future but to simply rejoice in this day…

If you’ve never had a chance to visit the Grand Canyon, I hope these pictures compel you to make plans – not only to visit but to plan on soaking in a sunrise or sunset. Click on the images below to see the higher resolution pictures. Enjoy! Read the rest of this entry »

Thank you Bend, Oregon. Loved exploring & hiking around your beautiful area. Going to bring my fishing rod next time. Sabbathing. Pouring into my soul. We can't give what we don't have. I love my church. So proud of the ways they seek to embody compassion and justice. Some of them were in downtown Seattle this week to demonstrate their solidarity with Ferguson.

I'm in the middle of a 3 month sabbatical at Quest. I'm grateful for this time of rest and rejuvenation...but I miss my church dearly. Can't wait to be back in October. There are some amazingly beautiful churches around the world. Just remember though that true worship begins when you exit the church walls and live out your faith and convictions.

#seattle 17.5 Year Anniversary!
We still got it. We look gooooood!

Blessed to be back in Princeton, NJ for couple days recently. We had our wedding ceremony in Korea but got "legally" married in the US at Miller Chapel in Princeton Seminary. So, it was only fitting to go back and have my kids take our 17.5 Anniversary  pics.
