Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

(Not so often quoted) Thoughts from John Calvin

These are good thoughts to keep in mind, especially when we note failures in those who played a public part in shaping and molding us:
“I am not unaware of the frailty of human nature. I ask only that, while we may at times limp and stumble along—as happens even to the most mature, more often than anyone would wish—we should nevertheless continue to judge and value each other as Christians. But on one condition: that those who stumble and trip up should not depart from the way of the Lord, and that no amount of stumbling should bring them to a complete halt. They should always struggle to their feet and try consciously to overcome whatever hinders their advance; although they may totter and tremble, they should never lose heart. Supposing they fall they should pick themselves up, so that, at the end, nothing may stop them pressing forward, or looking toward the kingdom of God, which is their proper goal.”
~John Calvin
