in grandeur rising to the sky.
And then I contemplated me,
how very small I seemed to be.
Yet, in this fragile frame of mine
god chose to house a soul divine.
Not in that glorious sun-crowned peak,
but in this body, frail and weak.
God chose to give to you and me
the promise of eternity.
A child of His can such be small?
A soul is surely Heaven-tall.
No, the mountain stands that I might see
how greater is the soul of me.

Toward the end of our spring break, we jumped in the car and headed south with hopes of reaching warmer weather! We found exactly what we were looking for in St. George, Utah (otherwise known as the "mecca" of spring break hideouts for Utahns).
We enjoyed time at the pool and our stay at the beautiful Inn at Entrada (we stayed in their smallest studio casita, where the girls were kind enough to sleep on an inflatable mattress that had a habit of only staying inflated for a couple hours!). Mostly we enjoyed our time spent together hiking in the beautiful landscapes of Snow Canyon and Zion's Kolob Canyon.
And there contemplate the beauty of this glorious world,
the miracle of the resurrection,
and the inestimable worth of a soul.
