The little child within us that often felt unsafe in the world growing up, wanders around looking for shelter even as an adult.

It rarely occurs to us that such a place is ourselves.

If we don’t learn to trust the quiet emptiness that we are made of, we spend our life hoping to be welcomed into a place to call home.

A place where we can feel at peace and nurtured, away from a world often too big and unforgiving.

Dear Friend, if you are that child, take a rest right now.

Within you.

Take your younger self by hand and lead it into the most silent part of you.

It will be ever so scared at first.

So lost within that vastness we all come from, but we rarely allow ourselves to go back to.

The more you will visit, the more that child will stop fidgeting, until it can just rest and be.

That day, you become you own refuge.

If you wish to stay a little longer and visit around, Evoking Grace is the perfect place to take a pause from the world. Here you will hear your soul sing again and start telling a bigger story.
Stay as long as you wish, and as you leave remember to take your welcoming gifts with you.
