Holy Hill

Yesterday, I drove to Holy Hill
the National Shrine of Mary in the town of Erin, Wisconsin. 

I used to go to Holy Hill with Grandma to light candles and pray the rosary.

The view from the top of 178 steps is breathtaking!

After a long week and impending rain,
I needed a reminder of how blessed I am to live amid such beauty.

It is a lovely, natural, spiritual place 
where you can't help but marvel 
at the beauty that God has created.

 My prayer is that I may see beauty in every changing season 
and in the miracles that surround me every day.
