What is that little something you do when looking to turn your home into a sanctuary of peace?


Candles are lit throughout my home and Bocelli and Sarah Brighman are echoing amidst crosses and Southwest Art...A feel of a meditation chapel and the pup and kitten are bedded down.  I began the journey with Thomas Merton this eve and wanted to share with you in preparation for a new week...

"It was Sunday. Perhaps it was an Easter Sunday, probably in 1920.  From across the fields, and beyond the red farmhouse of our neighbor, I could see the spire of St. George's church, above the trees.  The sound of the churchbells came to us across the bright feilds.  I was playing in front of the house and stopped to listen.  Suddenly, all the birds began to sing in the trees above my head and the sound birds siging and churchbells rnging lifted up my heart with joy."

Oftentimes, my sanctuary of peace is curled up in the recliner with the quilt you sent me. Or laying in a spot of sun on my bed with my kids reading a book to them. And the most peaceful spot of all, sitting on my porch and enjoying the view.

Sanctuary - sitting on the bench outside the sauna on a winter night, in the nude, cooling off and watching the rabbits play in the full moon.

Sanctuary is my bed with a book (and hubby beside me reading as well)
