I love visiting the candle section. I'll smell them and feel so comforted. I do not know why this is, but I'm actually grateful for it. During some very difficult moments over these past two years (losing loved ones) I have gone there. As we make our way through the store I pray within my head to God. As time goes by I start to feel comforted. I've been trying to figure out why wal-mart? Why not a church or chapel?
What I'm learning is it's not so much the building that holds significance. For some odd reason that is where my psyche has decided to feel it's most secure - open and so that is where He meets me to help me get through whatever ordeal I am facing. To be honest I don't care where it is He meets me so long as He meets me. I know it's not the ideal place to find comfort, but it works for me. I'm actually joyful to know that My Father loves me so much that He's willing to meet me in aisle 8 at the local wal-mart.
