Losing a Special Place
Place can have such an impact on us. And going back to meaningful places can also be restorative, healing and such a comfort. One such special place in my life is this little Bible bookstore near my house. The owners are so genuine and kind, they make you feel like you are their best friend and share the very best parts of themselves so freely.
My book was written in these spaces and I spent many, many an hour in front of the windows with that little tiny lap table in front of me studying slow and allowing those pages to be formed into a book.
This little space closed at the end of last week and it is a such a loss to me. Mostly I want to remember the blessing of this place for the time I needed it and I am trusting God for a new place when I need it next.
In the midst of a very busy week, I took my last little soiree into the shop just to snap a few photos and feel gratitude in my heart for the privilege of studying here so many times in the past year.
Thank You, God for providing this place just when I needed it. Please lead my steps to a new study spot where I can dig into Your Word and utilize the blessings of that in my own life and sharing with others.
