I’ve been pondering what to do with this blog… Delete it? Amalgamate it with another blog? Carry on as is in some fashion?
I’ve decided it’s the latter for now. But to add a weekly incentive to post, I’m joining a photo challenge. WordPress.com’s Weekly Photo Challenge is the one I picked.
This week the topic is SOLITUDE.
“Solitude is very different from a ‘time out’ from our busy lives. Solitude is the very ground from which community grows. Whenever we pray alone, study, read, write, or simply spend quiet time away from the places where we interact with each other directly, we are potentially opened for a deeper intimacy with each other.” – Henri Nouwen
This aroma diffuser was a Christmas gift. I turn it on every morning (after an infusion of fresh water and a few drops of “Thieves” oil) and enjoy the aroma of cloves-lemon-cinnamon-eucalyptus-rosemary. This while I read my Bible, write my thoughts, and pray. It’s a wonderful several hours of daily solitude.
