“For you who fear my name, there will arise the sun of justice with its healing rays.” (Mal 3:20)Copyright 2018 Roxane Salonen. All rights reserved.[/caption] Somehow, despite still feeling the fragility of the previous days, I also sensed God holding me, and whispering, "I love you, Roxane, and I brought you here on purpose, to show you my glory and renew your hope."

And I'll always look back amazed at how it all came to be, all the good and all the bad, and how I realized anew my littleness, my powerlessness, my sheer dependence on God. But along with that vulnerability, I will always remember, too, the strength I felt gazing out at those incredible indentations in the earth, pondering how they had been made, even shedding quiet tears at the reality of what I was witnessing with my husband, our youngest daughter, and others that day.

What was your experience like?
