Sense of Place

Do you have a place where you feel grounded?  A place where your roots extend deep into the earth and yMINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERAou feel centered and whole?

Almost thirty years ago our family joined a dozen others and together purchased a condo at Junipine north of Sedona.   Here is MY place.  When I am beside Oak Creek in this beautiful canyon I can breathe deeply and feel my gratitude extend throughout my mind, body and soul.

Here our children swam and fished.  Here I wrote my Master’s thesis.  Here I grieved my parents’ decline.  Here I rocked all four infant grandchildren in the Secret Garden.   Here our son taught his sons to fish and our daughter watched her daughters leap-frog the rocks.  Here my husband works on plans for developing property in the canyon.  Here I learn new Threshold Choir music.

Thank you, Divine Presence, for the peace found in this place.
