Yesterday we were privileged to visit White Sands! On our drive out, it was hard to believe that there really was white sand out there, because all we were seeing was desert and mountains! It wasnâ€™t until shortly before the park entrance that some sand dunes started appearing. It was fascinating how God provided such a large area of gypsum/sand dunes there.
The Lord blessed us with gorgeous weather! With temperatures in the fifties and sunny, it was a perfect day. As we set out across the sand, it was an amazing experience to see the white â€œpowderâ€ stretching into the horizon. We enjoyed a day filled with climbing the dunes, taking pictures, enjoying the scenery, sledding, and walking. Mom, our memory maker, was very successful at this memory, and it is irreplaceable. Seeing and touching Godâ€™s creation in such a great expanse was so unique and amazing.
Here is a little glimpse into our time!
“The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory” (Psalms 97:6).
