Grand Canyon
January 2015



Naomi and I were able to visit the Grand Canyon for a bit between visits with Mum's side of the family.  You can just sit and watch for forever and not get tired of it! It is so Grand!


Looking down into the canyon. The weather was very pretty while we were there. This snow hadn't had a chance to melt yet.




Oh Lord, my God
When I in awesome wonder
Consider all the works
Thy hands have made


I see the stars
I hear the rolling thunder
Thy power throughout
The universe displayed


Then sings my soul
My Saviour, God, to Thee
How great thou Art
How great thou Art!

Youth Conference in Colorado


At the end of July Sarah, Esther, Lily and I got on a plane and flew to Denver, Colorado. We were headed to a Youth Conference.


Trying to entertain ourselves while we waited for the flight out.

Before one of the teaching sessions.  Jamming around the piano.
