solitude in seattle

seward park in south seattle is one of my favorite places for some quiet time. looking over the waters of lake washington gives me a sense that i am part of something much bigger than myself. moments of solitude at the small shore offers me a glimpse into grace. seeing the calm waves meander in reminds me of Christ’s peace

ocean and lake waters are always a gift. to me, the waves that crash the white sands of santa monica; lake michigan and its miles of bike paths; the retreat house at santa cruz are all gifts from God. they have offered me consolation and peace– a place of solitude

what places offer you peace? what places give you a sense of God’s presence?
