Sanctuary U2

PHOTO CREDIT: FACEBOOK FRIEND —  THANKS HH!

Where do you go for sanctuary?   Is it a place?   A song?  A person?    A habit?   A memory?   A belief?  A faith you claim?  All of the above?

How deep do you go in your oasis?  Could you stay a while?  Would you want to drown there?

How big is your heart?  How deep can it be cut?

Without giving away all that I am, I can safely say, on any given heartache or stress beyond my understanding, I’ll admit I like to get lost in the music and lyrics of U2.  I’m pretty sure they wrote the lyric “Let me in the sound” just for me.

Yes, I like to be transported away from hurt or disappointment and into what I call my “Happy Place”.   Their music soothes my soul and puts my mind at ease when the chaos of life sometimes surrounds me.     I think it takes me somewhere else:  Another time, another place. 

It doesn’t take me long once I start strolling along in my own personal oasis, until I bump into my new best friend; inspiration.   I love hanging out with inspiration, because then we usually grab two of my other great friends:

Lens and Pens

Grab a camera. Jot a thought.  Savor this moment.  It is your reference material for life.

Yes, whenever I’m in my oasis hooking up with inspiration, I find I get in touch with my inner artist for a while.  And you know what?  I kind of like her.

I meet me.  The real me.    I think I find the me that God actually intended me to be.

May you find peace in your oasis today!

And for you who need a little U2 encouragement today:
