A Hospitable Place

There is space here.
There is a place with
space here. You can
breathe freely, come
and go, sit for
awhile or stand and
stretch like my
Chocolate Lab does
first thing in the
morning after a sound
sleep eager to get out
into the cold, brisk
day and then prance
back in for something
to eat. It is a joy
to watch her in her
safe space. She had
it rough for about
six years but she
is safe now and you
can see it in her
eyes as she sits
and waits for a
treat and hear it
in her soft snores
while she sleeps
contentedly in
the big chair
in the spacious
great room. It
is that kind of
space and we
all need to be
free in that kind
of space, a place
for you, me and
Thee. It is called
Le Coeur as in
courage or, if you
prefer, simply —
the heart.
