Seeing Sacred Spaces

DSC_0286

I am always renewed and refreshed when I am able to visit the convent and grounds of Sisters of St. Francis Oldenburg as I did yesterday. It was beautiful, breezy summer day at the ‘Burg and I found myself walking the grounds with my new DLSR camera snapping photos and reflecting. Unhurriedly, I studied the surroundings for good pics and felt myself re-anchoring, refocusing and re-centering. All was seemingly right with my world.

The ‘Burg is a sacred space for me. A space to encounter the Creator and Creation. A space for reflection, for rest, for pause. A space to breathe in Grace and Love. I drove home with good pics and a renewed spirit.

What are sacred spaces for you? In what places do you encounter the Creator, the Divine, the Holy? How are ordinary places sacred for you?

I hope this day you are able to experience sacredness in the spaces around you.

Blessings,

Christy
