The Cuyahoga Valley National Park has been a place of sanctuary for me throughout the busy Fall Semester.
I’ve returned to park week after week to seek God and refocus myself on His love, His goodness, His peace, and His presence in my life.
Since the beginning of the “Fall,” I’ve watched the seasons change from Summer, to Fall, to Winter — and I’ve been awed by the consistent goodness of God throughout the changing of the seasons: both literally and metaphorically.
These walks through the woods have provided an incomparable refuge through work stress… family stress… times of wonder and awe at everything happening in, around, and through me… struggles with depression… and interactions with friends and family.
I look forward to returning a couple more times in 2017 and regularly in 2018. Lord willing.
