The question today at RevGals today is: if you had to move into a suite for an extended period (say a month) with just five familiar objects, what would they be?
The five objects would be different depending on what I was doing. Was I on retreat? A month long ministry exchange? (Which as I write this, sounds like a fun idea!) Am I participating in a continuing education event? Am I on vacation? And electronics has made this a very different question that it would have been just a short decade ago.
Here are my five:
- My camera; I rarely go anywhere without it any more, photography has become part of my spiritual practice, especially macro photography.
- My tablet; even though I use it primarily for preaching and reading novels, it’s got a Bible app on it as well as internet access.
- Cross-stitch, while I only do it sporadically, I assume that sometime in the month, there would be time to do it.
- A journal.
- My pillow! I like a really thin one and most places they are too fat!
