A temple (from the Latin word templum) is a structure reserved for religious or spiritual activities, such as prayer.
I visited MY temple this weekend. It's a place I hold very close. It's the baseball stadium in Cleveland.
I receive a great amount of peace & joy whenever I visit this special place. And a lot of this feeling comes from the relationship I had with my Dad.
He was the one that first exposed me to the sport of baseball, whether it was a game of catch in the backyard, or a trip to a big league ballpark.
Whenever I got back to Progressive Field in Cleveland where the Indians play, my first stop is a visit to Heritage Park in centerfield. That is where all the Hall of Famers and all-time greats are honored...it is also where I honored my Dad with a Memorial brick with his name on it.
And when I see the brick with my Dad's name on it, it instantly feel his presence.
That's my special place...MY temple. I'd love to hear about yours.
