“Where do we find peace?

“Where do we find peace? Peace is in the rosy softness of a new dawn breaking. It’s the sound of the wind across the mountain peak, the quiet and mystical beauty of a snow-flake drifting silence downward to a land blanketed in white. Peace is the elusive Kingdom of the Soul.”

“Lord Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console not so much to be understood as to understand… and not so much to be loved as to love.”

– St Francis of Assisi

mom’s favourite song so thought I’d share with you (thanks Jennifer).

Enjoy

.“Peace: It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. it means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.”

    Hi

    CAN’T KEEP UP…BUT THANKS FOR THE “THANX”

    MANY MORE COMMENTS OVERNIGHT (many thousands already on this blog…so hope it’s not slowing down your loading speed!)
    Am having to remove many and so sorry can’t reply individually, but DO try to read as many as possible daily
    so “thanks for the thanx”

    “As we live and move and have our being, so from this vision, we create heaven in our own lives… and perhaps even heaven on earth.”

    – craig (as inspired by Acts 17:28 and the words of Felicia Searcy)

    “Aim at the earth and you may not get off the ground.

    “Aim at the stars and you may reach the moon.”

    “Aim at heaven and you’ll have earth thrown in…

    and you may even hit the stars.”

    – craig (as inspired by the famous quote by CS Lewis – 24th May 2012)

    “When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”
    – Leonardo da Vinci

    “If a man is called to be a street-sweeper,

    he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted,

    or Beethoven composed music, or

    Shakespeare wrote poetry.

    He should sweep streets so well

    that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say,

    here lived a great street sweeper

    who did his job well.”

    – Dr Martin Luther King, Jr.
