A Thin Place

I have heard that the Celts describe a “Thin Place” as the place where heaven and earth collide.   A kiss of sky and earth in the distant horizon, it is a sacred intersection when time and space stand still. 
A little over a year ago I found myself in such a place.  A sacred collision of my world and heaven – its impact mangled both life and heart.  The effect has carried well into the days, weeks and months that followed.  It has been a wrestling of soul and self where the One who gives my very breath demands my total submission.
And now my friends, I hear its echo like a deep and heavy drum.  Its reverberation pulsates to the rhythm of my heart.  Drawing me back to its hallowed ground and I can do nothing but go. 
As I stand at the threshold, I know this moment carries with it a sure and certain risk.   I wait expectantly.  To be caught once again in that kiss.
