We each have our own courtyard within our souls.
Our hearts carry the words of poets and philosophers, the inspiration of artists, and the ideas of geniuses.
We have a place of amusement and entertainment right in our own hearts and minds.
We each have all of this and more within ourselves.
Enter the silence and absorb the wonders deep within you.
The courtyard within our souls is enough to sustain us.
Spending time with ourselves takes us to the place God resides. He awaits our acceptance to His invitation. He is ready to fill the void within us.
He lives in our soul’s courtyard; right in the heart of the matter.
Everything we need is here for the asking.
Quiet your mind and the courtyard will appear.
Enter and be amazed, amused, and appeased.
Living in the Gap
March 8, 2012 – Strolling with a walker
Dirt Man with a walker shuffles through the obstacle course of toys strewn about the carpet and fascinated daycare children. Both girls, and infant and a toddler, cry at the sight of the walker and retreat as far away from it as they can. Two of the boys (brothers), a toddler and an infant, gravitate to it as quickly as they can. Toddler runs up to Dirt Man grinning and laughing and tries to help guide him along though this soon turns to him trying to climb the bars that run up the sides. Infant boy races to get ahead of him and darts in and out of the pathway. He crawls beneath and tries to go between Dirt Man’s legs and then attempts to pull up and stand using the walker bars as a crutch. Yes, the curious boys are fall hazards. It becomes a game of chase and get away. I find the reactions between the sexes interesting as I would have guessed their attention/fear to the walker would have been more related to their ages.
