My Hiding Place

"Knowing God's love for me is challenging because I am so often dissatisfied with my own efforts and achievements.  Maybe it's not about them.

During morning prayer, the candle's flame reflects a thread of peach light into my eyes.

I sit here with my pretty light, the pleasant frankincense smell, and honesty before my God, my hiding place."

  4. Lovely, lovely thoughts. I identify so much with that first sentence. But you're right - maybe it's not about them.

    Beautiful.

    You say so much, in so few - but powerful - words.

    God Bless you.
