The Peace Within

20170915_165534

Not every corridor brings us freedom, not every journey heals

our wounds, and yet if we begin our steps

from the peace within, we will know

the hope

of another tomorrow.

I Wish You Peace and Blessings

20170527_170918

You may have noticed that when someone leaves a comment, I thank them and wish them peace and blessings. But do you know why?

Well to be honest, it’s because this world is so filled with hate, and chaos. And there is so much damage done daily to our spirits.

I do honestly offer peace as a small gift, perhaps as a way of repairing some of the damage we all face.

I think it’s important for readers to have a positive experience here. And I do offer blessings sincerely. It’s like a prayer really.

So even though it may be repetitive, I honestly want to make a positive difference, and bring a small amount of beauty into our world.

So I leave you with – peace and blessings! Amen.

Giving Flowers

20171001_150036

In times of our deepest loss, tragic moments

never making sense

we don’t feel loved, do we? Perhaps

we offer our tears, our prayers

and some flowers,

as a source

of love

and strength.

   

Note: In addition to New York, our family is praying for some friends today, who lost their father, in a tragic accident.

Walking in the Autumn Wind

20171024_161802

As the oak leaves were filled with the brightness of the sun,

the wind swayed the tops of the pine trees,

and rippled the lake, carrying our prayers

over the surface of the water.

A hawk flew over with her shadow,

circling the poplar trees,

as the fall flowers reminded us of warmer days.
