My daughter, Kate, gave me a book for Christmas that she knew I would love. The Simple Faith of Mister Rogers: Spiritual Insights From the World’s Most Beloved Neighbor. The chapter I read this morning was on prayer and I want to share just one thought that touched me this morning:
There are some things that are eternally reserved in privacy between the individual soul and the Creator. There is a dimension of delicate pain in this, but even in our aloneness we together, for we each have it.”
It never occurred to me before reading this that the loneliness I sometimes feel may just be that special space set aside for just my Creator and I. Perhaps this is the closet that Jesus was talking about to which he called us to pray, to be alone with our Creator.
