I heard a new word this weekend.It is one of those words that is pretty obvious in its meaning and very weighty in its implications. I’m sure that many of us would say we feel this word as much as read it.
As I sat in the crisp morning air surrounded by those stunningly beautiful rock formations, I think I finally began to learn what it meant to be quiet enough to hear the rocks. And I assure you, it’s worth hearing.
There is a rich dimension of marriage that resonates in me as I listen to this song. It is that realization that my beloved is indeed my safe place, my shelter from the chaos and strife of life. This relationship is my retreat.
