Hallowed Ground

This morning while studying and praying at my desk and glanced out the window to a dark, dreary rainy day, I felt the same way!  My housecleaner couldn’t come due to daughter’s illness and my art teacher had cancelled class due to illness.  As I was praying, I just felt spiritually flat and was drawn to Matthew 9 where it is talking about fasting.  I then read verses 16 and 17 which state “But no one puts a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment; for the patch pulls away from the garment, and a worse tear results.  Nor do people put new wine into old wineskins; otherwise the wineskins burst, and the wine pours out and the wineskins are ruined; but they put new wine into fresh wineskins, and both are preserved.”  This just screamed out to me that I certainly could not pray with old negative, inconvenienced thoughts.  They needed refreshment and gratitude and as I did this, even outside became lighter.  I know I should always be on hallowed ground when I study and pray.
