To lay down and rise in God
A quiet corner for contemplation
communion and friendship
our English rose garden is just outside the window
a vintage chair from my childhood
the edges tattered and torn; well-loved and cherished
"The contemplative life is a search for peace in the openness of love."

St. Ephrem the Syrian hermit 373
It's always nice to have a quiet place of your own to sit and ponder. My contemplative corner is a sacred space in my boudoir where I read, write, and fill my soul with stillness. I can look out the window that overlooks the English roses, lavender and potager. Do you have a place of restful devotion?
