When your body’s tired and your spirit’s weary, where do you go to seek renewal? Sometimes I look for peace in quiet meditation or prayer. Very often, I find solace among my family and friends. But sometimes I escape to my oasis, which is what I plan to do this weekend.
In the middle of a scrubby wasteland, lush greenery rises from the desert floor.
An outcropping of boulders and palm trees forms a steeple above the entrance.
Rustling vegetation and a burbling wellspring sing a convocation: Come in, come in…everybody’s welcome.
Until I witnessed it firsthand, I never could have imagined such a place existed. Surely this must be some of what the Israelites experienced when they reached the Promised Land!
An oasis is a peaceful place in which to commune with nature–or to go inward. It’s a spiritual refuge, offering each visitor a special message and benediction. I hope your weekend is equally restful and restorative, and that you’ll find your personal oasis.
