Love’s cocoon is a very sacred place.  I know this with all of my heart, as I was just there. It is born of God’s protecting grace and His abiding love at a time when we are blessed with the most tender and sacred of  life’s events.  For me, I felt it most intimately following the birth of my baby grandson, just one week ago.  Now, I have somewhat hesitantly had to emerge from this loving, sweet cocoon as the reality of life awaits me on the outside.  However, what brings me the most peace and comfort is the assurance that nothing truly sacred ever leaves us. I believe that when we can draw from the warm memories of what we hold most precious, our lives are not only richer, but the light within us glows a little brighter.
