The refreshing coolness of the atmosphere greeted me when I began my evening walk at beautiful Lake Junaluska, N.C. As I viewed the lights piercing the darkness across the expanse of water, I also noticed the cross high on the hill, gleaming brilliantly for all to see. Turning my head, I unexpectedly saw an afterimage of the cross in the sky.

The splendor and inspiration of perceiving the cross twice warmed my heart.

"For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God" (I Corinthians 1:18).
