God in all things


This photo of a tree from Mt Rainier National Park reminds me of peeling off layers from an onion. Which is a common metaphor for trying to sort out the complexities of our lives. Or emotions.

I recently read another metaphor, attributed to Father John Bartunek:

“Silence, for our spiritual life, is like the space inside the body of a violin: it is what allows the music to resonate.”

I find hiking provides the silence which allows me to reflect on God’s presence in my life.
