THIS PLACE LANDED ME

Today’s Prayer to Passage will be from the book “Anne of Green Gables” by Lucy Maud Montgomery.

Today I pray, “Dear God, I now often think about the place where I spent my childhood, and how that place contributed to my humanity. When I return home to the farm, I look upon the green rolling hills beneath bright blue skies as a moment for appreciation. This place landed me. My time on earth began here, and it is not without much due appreciation that I continue my forward trek. Amen.”

Following my prayer, I held the closed book in my hands and opened it to this passage:

“I’ve come home in love with loneliness.”
—LUCY MAUD MONTGOMERY

I do feel free from all energy of society and learning when I return home. There is a familiar space, a plot of land that I love. Many times my parents are there, and we now raise one another. I feel free. I feel a perfect loneliness that sets me apart from constraints of people in the world and their expectations. It is a frame of time and a space on earth. I can breathe here. I can heal here. I can remember myself here.
