Being Present

I took this photo a couple of weeks ago when we were hiking at the Narrows Park. I remember the afternoon vividly. The air was crisp but not too cold. It was a sunny day and nearly no wind as you can tell from the calm water. I remember looking over and seeing the pile of rocks and thinking that it would make for a good picture. I took pictures from a couple of spots but liked this one the best.

One thing about taking pictures is it makes you pay more attention to details. Another way to think about it is that it forces you to be present in the moment. Being present is certainly an important part of seeing God in all things.

Autumn

This photo was taken in early November.

It is evident that autumn is upon us, as evidenced by the change in color of the leaves. Fast forward less than two weeks and it feels like winter is upon us.

Just as winter is associated with dying and death, autumn can be associated with the aging process. Similar to the leaves changing color as winter approaches, my hair is rapidly becoming gray. Wrinkles are appearing.

The seasons also remind us of the circle of life. Summer fades into autumn as then to winter which eventually leads to spring and new life. I look around and see new life in my grand children.

God said “It is good”
