Peace

why are we here 2Peace is a state of mind, which has a different meaning to those who genuinely seek it.

Peace is freedom from distraction, focusing on the beauty of life

Peace is love and being loved

Peace is the stillness of the morning on a bright sunny day, being still and enjoying the sunlight coming through the windows.

Peace is refraining from battles with those you come in contact with, a coworker, children friends or your spouse.

Peace is looking at the waves crashing on the beach time and time again, looking far and wide at the ocean that lays ahead.

Peace is tranquility, silence in a pure moment of surrender to this vast universe, observing all Gods creation and marveling at his creativity.

Peace is standing tall at the top of a mountain, screaming at the top of your lungs, feeling the wind blowing through your hair, and the freedom of just being, breathing and taking in the sites.

Peace is being in harmony with the world around you, not destroying but living harmoniously.

Peace is silence in prayer, praying for God’s blessing, healing and direction.

Peace is being still and meditating in God’s word.

Peace is believing God exist, creator of the universe, his unconditional love and gift of salvation. Knowing he is the same yesterday, today and always.

Nuggets of Truth: May the Lord of peace give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.

2 Thessalonians 3:16

Thanks In Giving

fallAnother year, Another Holiday

A day of thanksgiving and praise

Thanking God for all his love, goodness and tender mercies

Special time shared with family and friends

Feasting on earthly delights

Living in gratitude for all his provisions

And yet remembering and giving to those in need

There is thanks in giving and not always receiving

A time for reflection and praise

Thank you father for the privilege to be called your son or daughter

Sending Jesus to point the way

As undeserving servants we give thanks for your patience,

when we walk in the wrong direction

Thank You Father for your Blessings and inspiration in your word.

Bless and praise the lord and call upon his name

LIVING WITH PASSION

muscian

Recently, I saw a program on PBS featuring Eric Clapton in concert. I never knew anything about his music but suddenly I was captivated by his songs and the passion in which he sang. Hanging on his every word with joy touched my soul, Mr. Clapton sang the song called Tears in Heaven. He gives through his music and we receive the benefits. If you ever want to get a glimpse of what living with passion and dedication is all about, check out people who sing for a living, play sports, musicians, dancers, or anyone who is truly committed to their intention. I was in awe as he drew me into the moment. His dedication to his art all these years is truly inspiring for all who attends his concerts. Continue reading “LIVING WITH PASSION”
