I am not a photographer, but I love photos! This is one of my favorites that was taken in Olympic National Park in 2009. When I look at the beauty of the tree, it reminds me of God’s beauty and goodness reflected in creation. Symbolically, I think of God as the roots in my life, similar to the roots of a tree. When storms rage, I am not sheltered from the wind and will often shake in the trials. However, I can remain strong and stand tall with God as my roots, holding me me in place and keeping me from falling.
