As I write this article for the Tower, I am enjoying God’s gifts of summer – the warmth and beauty of the setting sun, the rainbow colors of wildflowers and woods, the music of the whip-poor-wills, phoebes, mourning doves and loons. I am in the north woods of Michigan for several days of writing and respite. In the calm of the evening, I have ventured out in the kayak and observed the stillness of the lake occasionally disturbed by the tail of a damsel or dragonfly. I am always amazed at how something so small results in such a large rippling effect. The concentric circles spread amazingly fast and grow so large.
