I did something a bit out of my "box". A friend of mine belongs to the Presbyterian Church in our little town. They were doing something they had never done before and she invited me to go with her to experience it. They put a labyrinth in the middle of their Sanctuary and after reading an article about it's meaning and how to navigate it, we walked the labyrinth together. It was interesting and certainly a time for meditation and reflection...along with prayer. The newspaper did a little paragraph about it: "The procedure of labyrinth walking is divided into three phases: the journey inward, a pause for prayer or meditation at the center and the return journey" We went in and read some instructions on how this was to be done and some history about labyrinth walking. The church was lovely and the music was very angelic. (Although my friend didn't enjoy the music as much as I did!) I liked the music because it kept me focused on prayer and meditating. My mind wanders so much when I try to meditate in a quiet place! (I think I probably have some alphabetic disorder.. ADDHXYZ...or something) So the music helped! We walked quietly and reverently. I'm betting this experience meant more to some than others. I think many people are looking for "something" in this world. Whether it's a spiritual experience or answers to prayers or help in life, people will seek out these opportunities in many different ways. I can't say I had any huge awakening to my soul, (I'm very happy in my own religion of choice...The Church of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints) but taking time to ponder and pray is always time well spent....especially this week before Easter. I have a strong faith and love what my Savior, Jesus Christ has done for me. I love the Easter season. I grew up Catholic and also celebrated "Greek (orthodox) Easter with my Mom's family. It was a special time of traditions, fasting, prayer, and then the big feast. No matter how or what you may believe, or if you even take this time to celebrate Easter, I wish you peace, happiness and love. Here's a photo of the labyrinth.
