Drive-By Beauty

 Breath-taking views from our car windows as we drove west on highways 70 and 68 in Maryland and West Virginia...
 The autumn colors were still very much in play, much to our surprise and delight!
Psalms 8 
(3) When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained, (4) What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him? (5) For You have made him a little lower than the angels, And You have crowned him with glory and honor. (6) You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet, (7) All sheep and oxen– Even the beasts of the field, (8) The birds of the air, And the fish of the sea That pass through the paths of the seas. (9) O LORD, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth!
I couldn't get my camera in gear fast enough to capture ALL the steeples that were visible on the ramp into downtown Cumberland, Maryland.  To me, they were like fingers pointing to the Creator of all the beauty we saw as we traveled this afternoon....I see at least 4 in this picture, but I think I actually saw 6 at one time.  I SO wish I could go back and get this one "right"!


  1. Beautiful pictures...thanks for sharing.

    I particularly loved the coffee shop - because I just love coffee and tea shops!

    Just wanted you to know I truly appreciated the recent comment you left at my blog. It was so kind, and caring... I even mentioned about it on my latest post.

    Just want to thank you, dear Rebecca.

    Blessings on your vacation. I've been to the Maryland, Washington D.C. area... I love your country. It really is a very beautiful land.

    I never quite understand when people aren't moved by beautiful scenery...sometimes it just takes my breath away.

  11. I want to know more about your vacation. Is it a sightseeing vacation, visiting friends vacation, relaxation and recreation, or all of the above. Are you visiting several places? How long will you be gone? Have a great time. What a wonderful time to travel.
