"The Sanctuary Door"

I am "The Sanctuary Door" because I hold love and inspiration behind me and am open when those seeking what is inside come to hear God's words. Some just sit in the stillness and hear the music of angels playing through their minds. Some come to light a candle for a sick loved one, but most come to sit and pray. Whatever the reason I am opened is why I am important. It isn't that I am beautiful or old or close by, it's because of what lies unseen after I am opened.

"Never judge a book by its cover" is an expression we have all heard. When you see the building that is the Sanctuary itself you may think it needs some fixing up on the outside, and maybe I, the door, need to be painted now and then, but it does not reflect what you see inside when you walk in. The same expression is used to describe people. How they look on the outside is not to be judged. They hold the same love and light as all humans do on the inside and should be treated with the same respect as this worn Sanctuary.

Look at your face in the mirror and whatever you see is not who you really are. Who you really are is hidden behind your exterior just like the Sanctuary interior is the most beautiful place to pray or listen to the music that is God. Your soul and Spirit is singing the music of your God… your interpretation of God… possibly Nature is your God, or another spark of the same energy that is within us all is your God. And you are right.

There are no wrong pieces of music behind me. There are no wrong words spoken or heard. We are all made from the light that lies within us. Peace.
