On the way to our daughter's house, along the side of the road there is this miniature chapel. We stopped one day and went in. It did my heart good to see that there is a place for just anyone to come and stop and pray and have a place to go... no matter what.
It reminded me of when I was going to the hospital 5 days a week for 3 months having my Radiation, as I was battling cancer. As I was leaving from one of my treatments one day, I found the Chapel ...it was just newly built there in that wing of the Hospital. As I walked in I found incredible effort had been made to make this as close to a sanctuary in a hospital, that anyone could need while they were spending so many hours there for their treatments. When I first walked in there I noticed there was a Prayer Journal where so many family or friends could write in it. As I read it, I was touched on how many people desired to have God in their lives and in the lives of their loved ones who are struggling with Cancer. It did my heart good to know that so many people believe or at least wanted to believe!
I was grateful that my daughter Lauren noticed it too the other day, and stopped to take a photo of it, what a sweet thing!
Below the photo of the chapel, and what I wrote about it ...years ago. It still brings back good memories.
Hope you all have a place like this ...to find the peace and hope that the world could never give! I have, and it has made all the difference!
Good night dear friends!
"What I will miss the most, is that beautiful chapel... where there was such a wonderful spirit. I can't say thanks enough to all the people who were involved in creating that incredible room. I went in there today and wrote one last time in that prayer journal. It was definitely the highlight of my experience there, how I wish I would have known about it sooner. "
