My favorite park nearby is a wonderful place to walk amongst the serene paths, surrounded by beautiful scenery and hearing the most magnificent music playing in the background. Gentle music is playing from tall speakers throughout the park.
It was one of those days when the sky is so blue and the white puffy clouds perform a parade of wonder.
I love attending our church to worship on Sunday evenings, but sometimes I just want to be alone with God. I want to go within to hear that still small voice.
I love all forms of worship. and I believe that we are all connected through our prayers, no matter what our faith...
Walking down the path, everywhere I looked there were reminders of God.
Then I was surrounded by the wonder of nature, and sunlight peeked through the trees adding to the serenity.
A huge rain cloud appeared in the middle of the sky's performance and it began to rain. I took shelter in a nearby place.
Once I was inside, the sound of the rain hit the tin roof and I looked around and I was surrounded by prayer.
I looked around and saw so many prayers.
As I was lost in this beautiful thought, I lit a candle too.
It felt like I was connected to all those people who had lit these candles...
It made me think of all the prayers around the world...
I wondered how many candles had been lit today,
and the ones being lit by the people who were praying at that very moment.
And I knelt down and I prayed.
My walk had become my meditation and the candles connected me to that place of mindfulness...that place where you are alone with God.
I pray that wherever you are,
that God keep you safe.
The song for this post is Our Prayer.
