A Simple Look at a Not-So-Simple Life

Sanctuary

Life has turned me inside, outside, upside down these last several months. Yesterday’s news, while expected, was hard. I find myself feeling anxious about the future and about loved ones. Anxiety will suck the life right out of you, so I decided to seek out some peace today. I had to drive up into the mountains for an appointment this morning. On the way home I made a detour through a quaint little town, home to a tiny Episcopal church tucked up on a hillside. The church is always open. I’ve made stops there in the past for similar reasons: to sit in a quiet beautiful place that exudes peace and to pray. Sometimes I pray with words. Sometimes I pull out a prayer book from one of the pews. Sometimes I just sit and let the Spirit do the talking for me. Today I did a little of each.

I spent some time afterward walking around the sanctuary, inside and out, soaking in the beauty. I wish I had taken my camera with me. All I had was my Crackberry’s camera, so I made do with that.
