Sometimes life happens about us so fast that we don’t stop to contemplate the sacred moments of our daily lives. We fail to recognize that countless encounters throughout the day are dripping of the Divine presence. We forget that our relationships, our homes, our work is holy ground. God is present, are we? Come to the awareness and notice the change in yourself and how you relate to the world around you, your very self, and the people you meet in your day. You may tread more lightly in your relationships, you may treat others with more tenderness and forgiveness, a respect and gratitude may wash over you, as you realize, truly, you are on Holy Ground.
