I adore this picture because it is not only a beautiful picture but the contrasts between the smooth and the rough is so stark. It speaks to me of the reality of life that there at times that life is as smooth as we can imagine while other times it is choppy and unrelenting.
Curtice wrote of her experience of seeing the plains of middle America flooded and thinking not only of the devastation caused by the flooding but also of the newness that could eventually come. I love what she wrote about these contrasts…
The hard and unbelievable truth is that we walk both at the same time. We hold hope and despair, one in each arm, and we cradle them close to our chest, because they both have something important to say at every moment.
