Spaces 8 June 2016

Our spaces are so important-those little things that make us feel at home and comfortable. Those spaces where we can just be who we are and those sacred places that give us a moment to find peace, to connect with our God, to remember who it is we want to be. I often have my students write about their spaces and once-in-a-while we move to what we’d want in our ultimate spaces.



My ultimate bedroom would have a bay window filled with soft pillows as a comfortable place to sit and read or look outside and enjoy a cup of coffee. The windows would open to let in the cool breeze and be shaded from the hot sun. The floor would be cushy so my bare feet could sink into the plush carpeting and know bliss.

The bedroom walls would have built-in shelves full of favorite reads. The closet would be large enough for two people’s clothes and shoes and various other things. Into the ceiling, there’d be a large skylight so that when we’re lying in bed, we can see the stars and the moon, or the lightning and clouds.

I’d have a space for a chair and small table with a lamp so I could sit there and write or read when I can’t sleep.
