God Even at those ungodly hours I struggle to find that safe undisturbed place where I 1 can empty my mind and fill my heart Our back room consists of only a shower and two sinks and for many months I meditated and prayed in that room on the hard wood floors I would turn on the heater so that the whirring white noise drowned out the rest of the world But I missed the morning melodies of the birds the gentle humming of die insects and frantic high energy of the squirrels scur rying about the yard and so I moved into the living room However with my daughters room We iris building shelves for out
