just a thought ...



calmness ... this is what it looked like at work last thursday ... only one small cloud in the sky ... with it's mirror image reflecting back up from the water ...

tomorrow, after work - i head for the city ... the hustle and bustle ... busy people scurrying everywhere, kind of like ants ... which isn't a bad thing ... just different from my day to day ...

Jesus said, "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to 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). He also said, "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28).

you know - sometimes my work and it's physical location, are restful to me ... there are blessings to be counted in the every day, if we only look for them ... sometimes they are as close as a walk outside the door ...

God is indeed Present. Any Absence is ultimately our own.
