A natural doorway. Obviously important as it is shaped with a vision for its purpose.
The path is intricate and beautiful – announcing intention as one approaches.
What doorways do you enter that call for preparation before stepping through its threshold?
A Friday door.
I hope you find a gateway leading to a place where you can rest and refresh.

The light shifts from warm to cool.
Standing before an open doorway, we know the choice has been made and made again.
Can any one prepare for what a day might bring?
Maybe but it is always challenging to plan for how it will feel and the consequences at the day’s end.
May we walk this day present to each moment.

Holy Week is filled with stories. How easy it can be to think these are stories from long ago.
The olive tree, the olive branch… symbols of peace – then and now.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, pray for the peace of Syria… pray for peace.

Thankful for Friday, people awaken ready to look past the workday. Desks are cleared early and highways jam with hunger – hunger for freedom from the clock.
We are so accustomed to days that are filled with scheduled hours and minutes. So who is surprised that we often over-schedule ‘time-off’, leading us to places ‘familiar’. Places we find within our own circle of travel.
When you can feel ‘free from the clock’ take time to explore… never know what you might find!

Holy places can be found in the most unsuspecting places. These are places that feel sacred as you approach.
Do we go by these places each day without taking a moment to notice?
If the day allows, note your surroundings. What can you find that draws you as sacred space?

No doors to close or ceilings to contain – room for the wind and spirit to move, drawing seekers near. On faith we enter this sacred space.
Through it may we find renewal and inspiration.
“I can hear the hush.” – reflection on my Facebook page as I shared this morning’s ‘door’. Recently I have come noticed more postings with quotes having about silence. Silence and its ability to calm and heal the unsettled heart.
We are living in a time when unsettled hearts are too common. Seek the places/moments where a hush can be heard. May the brief quiet bring calm.
