Meditating on a Panorama of Beauty and Peace

Today (February 27, 2014), I get to enjoy another view of The Alps from afar, but this time, from the Sorell Hotel Zurichberg.

A view of the Alps and Lake Zurich from the Sorell Hotel Zurichberg

While standing outside the Hotel Zurichberg, I was able to get the following photos of Lake Zurich on a foggy morning.

That's me at the hotel facade
This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience! I so love this view of the pine(???) trees lined up in front of the Swiss houses along the streets. 

I look at them through the branches and twigs of some barren trees while the sun is just appearing beneath the clouds. The view of the lake with the Alps at the far left, isn't it such a beauty!

I see smoke coming out of the chimney from one of the houses. That reminds me of the story of Classics Illustrated, The Three Little Pigs. The wolf's desperate attempt to get the pigs, remember, was made through the chimney! :) 

I also see a few people walking around with their dogs tagging along--- peeing and pooing :) Makes me miss Moshi and Dutchie!!!!!

I feel the cold air brushing against my face. Perfect time to meditate upon God's word! Truly, "the earth is the Lord's, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; for He founded it upon the seas and established it upon the waters." (Psalm 24:1)

Beautiful color of the meadow. I just love looking at the grassy field!

This is where I enjoyed the panoramic beauty of the place
I sit here on one of the benches you see in the photo above, meditating on God's goodness for allowing me to relish the beauty of this place.
The picturesque view around Sorell Hotel Zurichberg
As I do, I read and pray through the first verse of Psalm 24, "My heart is stirred by a noble theme as I recite my verses for the king; my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer..." Praying that He would grant me such gift, inspired by the relaxing view of the lake and the Alps! 

I was about to leave the place when I saw this. The sun was just about to show up beneath the clouds. 

Here are other photos I took while strolling along the village near the hotel.

As I returned from my walk around the village, I came upon this big rock near the tree. It simply caught my attention. 

The houses in the village are visible behind the rock

The Sorell Hotel Zurichberg, located high above the city of Zurich, is certainly a perfect haven of peace and quiet rest.

I hope to see you again soon!
