 I used to dream of beautiful getaways where I’d fly into a scape of majestic beauty that would provide of place of escape changing my reality forever. Never have I experienced the need for refuge as I do now. In this desperate need, a dreamscape is the last place where I find shelter. I find refuge is a retreat within where I find shelter with my sweet Lord: a warm washcloth, a soft answer, an old Bing Crosby movie, an etsy gift find, praying through worship music or Scripture, a vanilla lit candle, deep sleep, a hug that holds, glowing conversation out to eat dinner/thank you Bucky, a sticky note from my sister Lu, my heating pad, help with a blog/K-May, healing tears/Hopie, glad to be home/Meg, an honest text/Ashie, a picture from the airport/Sean. . . .these things and more are my shelter in my storm.

It took this path of desperation to lead me to my Lord’s reality of true refuge. Thank you for the bouquet of roses, T.
