Daily Prompt: Sacred

Sacred – Since high school, I have enjoyed early morning time of contemplation before the day begins.  In the mid-1990s, I began praying the Psalms.  Being here often is also sacred time, as I create and share.  As life changes, challenges, teaches, and blesses in new ways, it is a great comfort to have these routines.
