These pictures are from Garden of the Gods, a silhouette of the canyons stretching across the horizon. The healing touch of nature is what I seek when I need calmness and serenity in my life. Jesus stretches out his hand to give a handling touch for those who seek him. When our daughter died, I couldn't sleep or rest without tears falling. I was in anguish, my heart was broken and the tears fell endlessly. It was my husband holding me in his arms until I finally went to sleep each night that helped to calm and comfort me. Through my husband actions, I experience God's presence in those moments of anguish and sorrow.
Moved with pity, Jesus stretched out his hand and touched him. ~Mark 1:41 NRSV
