Being away in Wales with YMCA residents, the week has reminded me again of the amazing creative and loving God that we have. Huge empty sandy beaches and hills from which you can see for miles, just speak of God's loving hand in creation. Taking time to retreat, reflect and pray in any place that breaks into our norm has a way of connecting us with God that is not possible in busy daily lives. I find when I am busy, if I create a space, even if only for an hour, I feel closer to God, and I get things back to perspective. Certainly, this week I have been reminded of his love and his power.
