It always amazing me where a tree will grow, and although they are stunted and disfigured from the storms they exist and create a distinct beauty that inspires me.
My husband and I got to spend a few glorious days in Ucluelet to rest and reflect. Although not everyone understands why I insist on driving such a treacherous road in such hideous weather, the landscape speaks to me. It really is the miraculous to see the, not just survival, but the conquering, the determination and success of overcoming all odds.
Life has many storms. If we can root ourselves deep enough into the dense rock of truth nothing can uproot us. We may scar and change, but if we keep our commitment and faith to what is true, we will grow. It is the storms that reveal what is worth holding onto.
