We had a chance to stay with my cousin and his wife a few weeks back, in Princeton, NJ. Cherice, my cousin Joel's wife, is a genius and gets to go to this fine school for seminary (you should check out her ponderings on her blog). I just felt the intellectual vibes as we walked around the Princeton campus. Oh, for a year just to soak up the information and knowledge here! We didn't get to go inside the massive library (not the best place for 4 little children) but I did drool a little thinking about how many books are in there.
I also imagined myself as a brilliant photographer (kind of like my cousin, Joel) while I took a picture of the most vibrant tree I've ever seen. Blazing fire red. This picture really does NOT do it justice- I spotted this tree across campus and made everyone lug the strollers over to it just so I could remember it. Amazing. What a gift to be here during the most beautiful time of year!
The architecture and stonework was perfect. My imagination was reeling over all the artists, architects and great minds who thought up and built Princeton. Just a glimpse at God's great attention to detail.
"...and he has filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill, ability and knowledge in all kinds of crafts- to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver and bronze, to cut and set stones, to work in wood and to engage in all kinds of artistic craftsmanship."
