Loving Touch as an Act of Re-Creation
Speaking to the Soul, the Episcopal Cafe blog, had a wonderful post yesterday by Maria Bolding, of the Order of St. Benedict. In it she recalls the wonderful experience of her childhood nightly bath, and the power of touch to remind us that God creates and re-creates us anew each day. When was the last time you slowed down and took delight in all the gifts of the daily bath or shower? The gift of water, of touch, of becoming clean, and, perhaps, the appearance of the creative muse who answers those questions you went to bed last night fretting about? Enjoy, enjoy.
Yours in health,
