Where is your sanctuary? Surely you have one. A place that is safe, secure, and sacred. A place you go when you desire to find your inner peace or celebrate or feel gratitude.
Since I asked you, it's only fair that I share my own. When I was a little girl the only time I heard the word "sanctuary" was at church. It was the biggest place in the church and had an altar, center aisle, a lot of windows, a place for the choir, and a place for the preacher to stand. I knew I wasn't supposed to play in there. There was a gold painted sentence up front that said, "Be still and know that I am God". That's what I thought it meant as a child...be still, don't wiggle, don't talk, and don't laugh.
But back then, I saw as a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. I saw through the glass dimly.
A "place", be it a church, your back porch, the sea shore, the
mountains, a lake, a rocking chair, or a hospital. It doesn't really
matter what leads you to your God.
