Beauty Awaits

And the city has no need of the sun or of the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God has illumined it, and its lamp is the Lamb.  (Revelation 21:23 NLT)

In the rugged San Juan Mountains surrounding Ouray, Colorado, you will find Yankee Boy Basin.  This four wheel drive adventure taken after the snow melts in July rewards the adventurer with fascinating beauty and splendor.  The mountain meadows are ablaze with the color of Indian paint brush, columbines, larkspur, lupins, chiming bluebells, dwarf sunflowers, and orange sneezeweed.  The eye beholds sparkling, crystal-clear water cascading down twin waterfalls and jagged peaks that reach thousands of feet towards the heavens.

  My occasional visits to Yankee Boy Basin are a sweet reminder of the future home God is preparing for me.  What did I do to earn such a glorious home?  Nothing!  Jesus offers it as a free gift to all who are willing to repent of their sins and believe in his atoning work on Calvary.  Have you made that all important decision to trust in the Savior?  If so, then a glorious mansion is waiting for you.  If not, won't you do so today?  Jesus is waiting to receive you into his kingdom.

Thought for the Day: The only light needed in the holy city will be Jesus the Lamb.
