Please read the Scripture passage and Dr. Bochonok's meditation. We hope you will be blessed. Thank you for forwarding this to your friends.
"Even the sparrow finds a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, at your altars, O Lord of hosts, my King and my God."
Kathleen Norris writes about "spiritual geography" in her wonderful book Dakota. She writes about places where our spirits and souls feel at home. There is a sense of belonging where we can be real and authentic. Our spirits feel big and at one with our surroundings. Some may call it sanctuary. Whatever we do call it, we need safe places to be for our sense of wellness and to enjoy some unhurried time for personal reflection.
We need beautiful, quiet areas of sanctuary in our homes and workplaces. They provide places of tranquility and peace. Consider creating a corner in your home for personal reflection and quiet time.
A comfortable chair, a prayer bench or prayer rug, a rock, a vase with a flower can enhance our spirituality and sense of wholeness. There is a saying that "spirituality is participation." We can participate in our spiritual awareness and inner wholeness by intentionally seeking, making, and finding quiet places to breathe, rest, relax, retreat, and revitalize.
God, help us find and create places of spiritual geography in our homes, offices, and lives where we can be real and authentic. Amen.
Grace and peace,
Chi Rho Press
