“The Cross: A Beautiful Sight.” By: Melodie Rose Jordan

The picture above I took while I was on vacation in Arkansas. It was my last night until I had to venture back home to Florida and my Aunt Debbie and Unlce Trent really wanted to take me to this mountain called Mt. Sequoyah. Now, the journey up to this beautiful sight is even better. While we were driving up this tall hill, I could not believe my eyes at the “mini blessings” God willingly gave us. We saw, with no exaggeration, 20 deer and 6 bunnies. Now, if you’re a Floridian like me, the only “wild” we see are either those Sandmill Cranes or Alligators, but 20 deer?! That was AMAZING! Right when we pulled up to the top, my eyes widened and my mouth slowly dropped. Right in front of me I saw this breathtaking view of a sunset sky that almost looked like someone just painted it. The trees were dancing  with the winds rythm and the mountains were such a deep, green like color. Then I walked up closely and saw this beautiful, white cross. My eyes began to well up in tears. I looked around and saw a large group of people looking at the same blessing I was with huge smiles on their faces. I could not even begin to thank God for giving me that blessing and for allowing me to experience not only his nature/creation, but to remind me the beauty of the Cross. Jesus died for us all. His blood and tears were poured out for ALL of us. I leave you with this verse that was actually engraved into the stone next to this large cross: “You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.”
