Peace, Tranquility, Contentment. If we cannot find these things alone without the TV on, without music, without a constant stream of activity. If we can’t sit and do nothing without feeling guilty, without feeling distracted, we need to learn.  Often I’ll turn everything off, close my door, light candles, put on symphonic music and open the Word of God and just let the Spirit Speak to me, quietly.

Picture 147

I find such peace in just strolling, walking alone, or with my two pups, Charlie, a Pomeranian, and Houdini, a Jack Russell mix.  I sometimes find that when my body is moving, my mind has an easier time being still.  In any case, find what works for you.  Take a bath, take a walk, turn off all the lights and read by the light of a single candle.  The darkness forces you to focus only on the page where the light shines.  May God bless you with peace inside, joy of heart, a heart that is full of love for others and love for Him.  Amen!

May God's Truth prevail and Love triumph, where we have failed. Amen

  1. AMEN – that is one of the reasons I love living here. You can literally hear the rain drops coming off the leaves and the soft breezes blowing through the trees. One of the really neat sounds is the fog horn blowing on cloudy days. Quite different from hearing the Baltimore Beltway traffic:):)
