Within the Waves

20190719_151539

What is it we search for within the waves?

Is it simply the rhythm

of the earth washing our spirits,

or maybe a reflection

pulling from our memories within?

Mostly I think, we become……

at peace with ourselves.

When We Speak of Peace

20180930_130115When we speak of peace, we not only speak for ourselves but also for the interests of others,

for the idea of peace is filled with wholeness, a sense of healing, a sense of safety and being protected,

a sense of being accepted, of being loved, and even having bread for our physical bodies.

May we all have peace.

Amen.

carrying strength in their wings

so that I can stand tall in the wind now,

encouragement fills me,

so I say, “Thank you my brothers.”

while sunlight dances

on the river.

“Pick up that sword you used to carry so well. You need to get your fight on hon, so let’s go!”

“You and I have some dragons to slay……”
