The Forward Day by Day Meditation

Today's Meditation

TUESDAY, July 16

Psalm 26.8 Lord, I love the house in which you dwell, and the place where your glory abides.

I love my home in many ways: I enjoy cooking something satisfying and something filling and delicious, lighting a prayer candle, or putting on a favorite record that fills my space with sounds resonant to my soul. I have a great love for feathering my nest, bringing order and beauty into my abiding place.

The comfort of my apartment is like no other place I know. It’s where I am most myself, where I retreat and renew my spirit. The respite I find there makes it possible for me to go back out into the world and do good work.
