“I captured this photograph last weekend. It is Brandywine Falls in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park in NE Ohio. It seems as though the sound the water makes as it hits and splashes across the stone, the silence the high walls of earth create….that is what we are to hear. The occasional bird chirping flying over head. A little escape from the roar and rush of the world or from the chaos that sometimes may consume our hearts. This is one of the places I see God and feel myself draw close to Him. A bit of reflection and relief I seek as I mourn the sudden loss of my brother-in-law last week. I dedicate this image to my sister and her husband whom we can only trust has now finally found peace in God’s loving hands. May you rest in peace, Mike.”
