This picture was taken by my wife Shayra on January 2nd of this year. Just two weeks prior, we decided to get each other Christmas presents we could both enjoy. I mentioned dinner and a show and she popped up and said “how about Vegas.” I said, “Only if the tickets are cheap.” We found roundtrip tickets for $142 leaving out of Philadelphia. We live in New Jersey. We travelled by train from Elizabeth to Philly, flew to Las Vegas and started our 7 day adventure. This picture was from our second day, when we drove to the Grand Canyon in Arizona. The view was amazing. You cannot help but to be in awe of this wonder. God’s creation is everywhere; in science, in humans, plants, animals, my wife and of coarse, mountains. Jesus says, "if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, move from here to there, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you" [Matthew 17:20, Luke 17:6].
