Resting In The Sanctuary

19 July 2017 Written by 

My husband has been “remodeling” our backyard, making it a haven of beauty. Lately I have been enjoying just sitting out there in the morning, being present and drinking in the beautiful nature I am surrounded by. The clouds are endless photos to enjoy. The birds sing in pure joy as I simply get to sit and listen. We have two African Grey parrots who live next door to us and are a continual source of joy and entertainment with their whistles, words, and calls.

 

Learning to sit quietly is a practice that is worth investing time developing. To sit and just “be,” not making plans in my mind, reviewing life or any other rabbit trails that my mind would just love to wander down – but just sitting quietly, drinking in the beauty of this moment. This is pure joy. This leads to a peaceful life.

 

I personally feel like all of nature is the true sanctuary. Spending time in nature can bring perspective and healing for the soul. It happens naturally, and without effort or stress. Just walking, running, riding, or sitting in the sanctuary of nature is like drinking from the cup of water that brings refreshment and energy.

 

Let my thoughts sit aside while I come apart and rest awhile in silence.

Raised on a dairy farm in upstate NY, I learned to work hard along with my five siblings. I grew up in a very conservative Mennonite-Amish church which shaped a lot of my fundamental core values and beliefs. After moving to Florida to attend college, I married and became mother to five children. Eventually, my unmanageable life came to a crashing halt and I found my way into an Al-Anon recovery program. Recovery has affected every area of my life and I love sharing the things I am learning with others so that they might also find hope for their own recovery.
