ripple effect

I’ve never been great at skipping stones across a lake. I love watching when others do and counting the number of skips and jumps as it moves across.

When I look at this photograph, I find myself appreciating the serene beauty and notice the peaceful waters even with the ripples. It serves to remind me that though we find ripples in our own lives, there is a calming force surrounding us.

When things are difficult to deal with, it helps to realize that there are those who will stand strong like the mountain for us when we feel weak. I’m grateful for those who have stood by me in times of struggle, and for those who remind me that the ripples may only be temporary until I can find smooth water once again.
