Peace Within Amid Chaos Without

Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. (John 14:27)
******************************************
Stillness. A slight mist in the air,
Low fog suspended over the pond.
A bird dropped by and then another.
Perched on top of the deck rail,
Chirping toward the rising sun,
Their song in perfect harmony.

**********************

As fog lifted and mist departed,
 PEACE entered my soul.
 A gift. A moment from God.
Did I say, “Thank you, Lord?”
The moments are many and daily if our eyes see, our ears hear, and our minds open to the unfolding gifts from our God.
PEACE may not be a word we think of much in today’s societal and pandemic chaos. It seems elusive and difficult to find. Yet, here it was in the early morning dawn. So simple. Yet, so magnificent.
“THANK YOU, LORD.”
