The Chair in the Meditation Garden

I have not slept well lately, mostly turning over and over and moving from room to room, one sofa or bed after another.

I can't totally pinpoint the reason. Maybe because workload has been horrific, or the preparation for the Tres Dias weekend, or the election (glad its over), or illness in the family. A sense of total dis-ease.

To try to counteract the feeling, I have changed my screen saver and added a chair to my computer screen. Everytime I turn on the computer I see this chair from the Abbey of Gethsemani.

The chair sits in the meditation garden. It is firm, not fancy or comfortable. But everytime I see it I think of meditation and the Lord. That is of comfort to me. What do you look at for spiritual comfort?

What do you look at for spiritual comfort? -- The dew on a grass (which is on my desktop) brings me comfort. + Jason in Mississippi.

A cup of tea would bring me comfort. :)

I have a couple of icons over my desk, and also a crucifix. Funny, I have a photo of that chair's twin brother that sits up on the hill next to the statue of St. Joseph. I took it in 1994, black and white. I love it. I've had it as my desktop many times. I'll post it on my blog again so you can see it Dan. Great Peace and Grace be with you!
