1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
Deb Neff, St. John’s financial controller, has been a talented professional night and landscape photographer for the past 14 years. She took the photograph above near Roanoke from the Blue Ridge Parkway in early December. She reflects on the image and Psalm 121.
Psalm 121 speaks to me. I have been a landscape photographer for many years, and whenever I photograph a sunrise, I feel closer to God. It is why I prefer to shoot sunrises more than sunsets. I only hear nature and my own breathing, no distracting sounds of other people or vehicles. Whether I am standing on a shoreline or on a mountain overlook, I am always exhilarated when the sun comes over the horizon. It gives me one more opportunity to appreciate all that God has created and I count my blessings and thank Him.
