Running Wave Contemplative

As the running waves perpetually lap upon the shores—wilful, placid, sure—

so too may our thoughts turn to God—

God of Light—God of Love—God of all our hearts. Amen.

Hmmmmm .... Blissful Peace

The toughest decision I made today

was choosing which pillow to have on my lap,

while reading Brene Brown.

The teal velvet pillow, graced by a giant golden seed-bead embroidered peacock, won!

Sitting here on a cold wintery day in the big bay window,

reading at leisure,

with the sun's brilliant rays lighting up the pages,

is truly a blessed gift.

Retirement is a blessed gift.

Life is a gift.

Let us all choose to see life, as blessing, as gift.

As for the "tone" of this note?!

Lofty? Not!

Pretentious? Not!

Personally reflective, serene and contented? Yes!!!

I wish we could all come to our peaceful place,

be in our peaceful place,

live in our peaceful place,

now and always.

+ + +

P.S., My summertime peaceful place

is sitting in my oversized hanging basket chair,

in my woodland garden,

in the freshening breeze.

Sigh .... Hmmmmm ....

Blissful peace
