Holy Ground Reprise ~ 1000 Memories
Greetings Dear Reader,
I have so many memories. Conversations with others resurface. Events experienced cause videos to play themselves in my head. For good or ill I cherish the memories that the journey has afforded me.
Sometimes the painful memories surface unbidden when I am alone. They attempt to divert me to things unhealthy and unbearable. It is simple enough to pray my way through them. Sometimes, however, I must entertain them briefly to see what they have to teach.
This practice does not make things easier. It is necessary for the journey. Then there are the memories that a beautiful and pure. Memories flecked with light the bring me back “to Friendship and Pleasure and Work and Fight.” The companions of recalling time with my children and others that I love dearly ease the pains and sorrows of life.
It is in the memories that I carry the lessons of life that urge me to be a better man, father, and friend. It is these good memories that are holy ground to me. It is in them that I see the moments where Christ carried and comforted me. It is in the holy ground of memories that put me in the proper place to find deeper faith; to follow more closely.
Wishing you joy in the journey,
Mat 13:52 So Jesus said to them, "That is why every writer who has become a disciple of Christ’s rule of the universe is like a home owner. He liberally hands out new and old things from his great treasure store.”
