The narrow road winds through the barren hills and seems to go on and on. Every once in a while you'll go around a curve and see a silhouette of what looks like a building of some sort far in the distance giving the idea that life exists in this seemlingly deserted area of California. And then there is the occasional home. Farm equipment. Fencing. And sometimes a barn. Life does exist.
And with or without the existence of physical life you have the beauty that only our God can create. Incredible blues in the skies. Clouds rolling across the blue. A golden glow from the sun setting in the west and the wash of light and color across the landscape. Yes. Life does exist.
