Alone with Spirit
Renewed in meditation
Sometimes just alone.
A deserted place can be a refuge from the business of the world, a place for gaining sustenance and gathering strength, a place eagerly sought and hard to find.
A deserted place can also be where we find ourselves alone, friendless, abandoned, frightened, without the resources we need to live.
To intentionally find our deserted places may bring us peace that can help us in the times when the deserted places find us.
