Day 213: Big Jesus (Christ of the Ozarks)

by John Nelson August. 01, 2010 3869 views

Christ of the Ozarks [] is a 67' tall statue of Jesus overlooking the Ozark mountains in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. While kind of funny looking, it's still awe-inspiring to see him standing there, are wide open.

I took this shot last night after a wedding in Eureka Springs. It was extremely timely and extra-special, as I had just received a text from my wife telling me that my oldest daughter (Emma, 6 1/2) asked Jesus into her heart last night! After taking several shots of the statue, I knelt beneath Him and gave thanks for answering my prayers as a parent and calling Emma into fellowship with Him!

I felt the same thing today when we were there in His presence. What a wonderful Father He is - and what a wonderful one you are, too!
