About this photo: “This photo is evocative. Capturing the grandeur of our Lord’s creations brings me great joy. Intense waves this day on Lake Michigan capture the feeling I have when I experience a manic episode. The power shown in the magnitude of the waves is evidence of His strength and might. I am reminded that our Lord is in control. No need for me to worry.
I simply can be mindful:
Listen to the waves pounding the sand.
Watch the gorgeous colors of water.
Smell the waterfront.
Feel spray and sand.
Taste water in the air.
This is a blessing .”
