The theme of this summer has certainly been water for me. I had the opportunity to go on a family cruise, my retreat was on Enders Island off Mystic, Connecticut and now I am just finishing a few days of vacation at the Jersey Shore. Last night we had one of those wild shore storms where the water and wind were thrashing everywhere. As I listened to the rain and the ocean in the distance I was struck by the many ways water moves. From the crashing of waves to the torrential rain that was coming down I remained in awe of what was going on around me. Above all I was reminded that all of this is a gift God's great love for us. Our God is an awesome God who loves each of us for who we are. Here are some images of God's love. Enjoy.
