Most times a Pilgrimage . . .

on a beautiful, peaceful pathway on a remote island is not available. Most times, for me, it's not in a quiet prayer corner.
...although it calls for me as I walk passed.
my pilgrimage to prayer and time alone with God are in my car.
I turn off all the noise coming through the speakers...
And this enclosed space with a graciously appointed seat with a view~
becomes a sanctuary.I listen in my heart to the Writer, the Speaker, the Example of the Word.

and a pathway opens up in my soul.
See how others Walk with Him today.

~All is Gift ...... All is Blessing

  1. Maria, your post is beautiful and meaningful. Thank you so much. I need to pray more in the car. Less road rage. LOL

  2. I love this. I was just thinking about this very thing this morning (I have to drive 40 minutes to town later today).

  3. Wow, what a beautiful blog! So glad I stopped in...

  4. Beautifully written!

    It's about making time... even in the "sanctuary" of our car. (smiling)

    I find that I can be alone with God best on a walk in the early morning... when I make time for that :-)

    God bless you as you strive to make prayer a priority. I'm striving with you.


  5. Lovely words...thank you!
    I love this phrase....
    and a pathway opens up in my soul.



  6. I love the pathway ... in all forms. It is .

  7. It's amazing how that place can become a sanctuary! He meets me there too! Thank you for sharing~Lela

  8. You are a blessing. In my own pilgrimage of prayer, I find Him there too -- in the driver's seat.
