I like the analogy that God is like mountains on a foggy day. You can't see him, you can't touch him, but you know he is there. Then when the fog lifts and you make the journey up to the mountain side, you see God face to face in a more clear and real way than ever before.
Even when we can't see God or feel God, when chaos, tragedy, or trivial worries distract us from God, any time, any day, any rhyme or any reason, God is always there surrounding us with hope, peace and joy.
Tomorrow is the last week of Advent, the time to focus on the love of God, love so clearly expressed by the baby in the manger.
