Spirituality is such an important component in life. So many "recenter your life" books talk about spirituality as a key dimension right up there alongside relationships and career. At the end of the day, spirituality is what holds everything else together.
I found that photo on iStockPhoto and bought it because it felt so moving to me. I love it too. I love how the watcher "loses himself" in the beautiful sunset.
Certainly, we can have a virtual fire pit tonight! We have a *ton* of wood in our back yard that we've chopped down over years and years and just stacked up. Bob had always wanted to get a chipper but those things are very expensive. So finally we settled for getting a fire pit, which is extremely cheap, and just planning on burning all summer long. It took us nearly 20 years to collect this wood, so I'm ok with a long, slow "cleansing" process.
Every morning I read from a book called Grace for the Moment by Max Lucado. It is a daily devotional with a Bible quote for each day of the year and an explanation from Max Lucado who is an author and pastor. It is a great way to understand that I have grace every day from God. Starting my day like this renews my faith and spirituality.

That sounds lovely, Debbie. It's so true that finding a way to celebrate each day can help remind us of what is important.
Today I focused on messages of love and support for those around me. The world is harsh enough as it is. I want to ensure I do my best to preserve an atmosphere of love and nurturing in my various environments. I made this in the back yard .
Our time on this earth is brief. My hope is with each day I find a way to be supportive of love and growth.
