God is There

I took this picture on a cloudy day in December. I remember my thoughts at the time – even though the sky is full of clouds, there is no doubt the sun is behind them. And so it is with God’s presence in our world. 

The sun is there, even when you don’t see it

Frozen Pond

With colder weather headed our way, I was looking for a wintery image to share today. I took this photo in mid-December during some very cold weather. I was intrigued by the pattern on the pond, created by the wind. Another instance of being able to see the “invisible”.

God’s Surprises

After I chose this photo to post this today, I was reading a reflection discussing how to “leave room for the Holy Spirit.” The author, Rebecca Ruiz, includes this quote from Pope Francis: 

The newness which God brings into our life is something that actually brings fulfillment, that gives true joy, true serenity, because God loves us and desires only our good. Let us ask ourselves today: Are we open to “God’s Surprises “?

I believe these photos of “Seeing God” have been a way for me to be open to God’s Surprises.

Lifeless?

This photo was taken last January. “Looking for God” definitely made me look at things differently. The empty branches on this tree reminded me that it wasn’t that long ago they were full of color and wouldn’t be that long before there was new growth in the spring.
