I wonder how long I’ll be able to keep it up. Today I took an hour or so to go to a quiet place and just be. Last week end I did the same but inside. This evening I went out for a short walk down by the river. Being quiet like this refreshes me mentally and spiritually. As it gets colder I will try and continue to take this kind of time – likely up at our church’s prayer room. It seems to give me a sort of stability I need.
I lay back and watched the grey clouds scudding across the sky above me and was surprised at how quickly they changed to a collection of cloud lower on the horizon with the grey blue sky of the evening sky dominating the scene.
I wonder what it is that makes us relate to God in these kinds of ways. I am closest to his presence in the outdoors and in the quiet of being alone.
A second good thing was started today as well – meeting with another woman for spiritual direction. It is required for the course I am taking but although today was only the begining I think this will be good.
