Moved by the Mountains

On Saturday, I asked David if we could go to Lake Arrowhead. I needed to clear my head from the crazy week and Alex had been begging us to see the snow. The day was absolutely gorgeous.

We took a boat tour on The Arrowhead Queen. 

It was a beautiful trip - very calm and the water was like glass. 
The nice captain even let Alex pilot the boat for a little bit,

while David and I relaxed and enjoyed the breathtaking views.

We saw a lot of huge lakeside estates.
The captain said they usually remained empty for the winter.
The scenery made us feel like we were in the East Coast.
I wonder what it's like to live in this fairytale home?

A park stood at the end of a peninsula overlooking the lake.

Alex and I had a snowball fight and we made snow angels.
Here are my handsome snow angels.

A lovely family photo to remember the day.

This day brought a very special lesson. It reminded me that no matter what problems I have to face, so long as I have faith in God and the love of my family and friends, I can move any mountain. 

"If you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you." - Matthew 17:20
