Children are such wonderful teachers! When I am busy and lose focus on what is truly important, I am reminded of the beauty in God’s creation by the simplicity and depth of a child. As we worked on the labyrinth project, we also invited those who wanted to paint prayers and messages of hope on rocks from a member’s creek; prayer rocks to be placed near the path of the labyrinth. A child created the lovely rock art shown above, including a message I try to carry with me each day. Whatever the season, God is here. Although trees may look dead in winter, we have faith that God will bring them new life in the spring. It is important for me to be reminded of these things at all times, not only joyful times. Even when I’m having a bad day, looking for God in all carries me through the storms.
