I thought you might like to know about the picture above. We have a very small room in our house. I think it was designed to be a study but you can barely fit a desk in it. You can however, fit a comfy chair and a CD player, but nothing else. I like to keep it simple. The children affectionately call it ‘the quiet room’. I have the luxuory of having an oratory in the centre of our house. ‘The doctor’ uses the room to listen to his classical music and to escape the TV. I use the room to wait on God.
There is a high shelf that runs the length of the room. On the shelf I keep my precious stuff. Mathmagic bought me the blue cross back from Poland when he went on a history trip to learn about the concentration camps. The chalice was an ordination present. It came from a lovely craft shop near to Salisbury cathedral. The Celtic knot dish I love. I’ve used it as a font. It came from a pottery near St Davids. I haven’t doctored the picture. The candle wasn’t lit but somehow the reflection from the flash makes it look as if it is.
Special things in a special place, all bring me closer to God in some way.
