“Bear” with me

“Bear” with me
And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone. Matthew 14:23
Hey Kids:
Are you sometimes overwhelmed with all the pressures of school and sports and other activities?
Do you have a special quiet place you can go to relax and read and pray, away from all the technology and distractions of our time?
As a child, my pastor had a favorite rock, where he would go to get away from the distractions.
My mom would hide out in the leaves of a giant tree where no one could find her.
My spot is my garden when I can’t get away to the mountains, but there’s nothing like hiking in the cool fall air amidst the changing of the colors, the ridges wrapping me up like a blanket as the sunsets on a quiet day.
Quiet blessings,
