On this gorgeous August day, the lily pads that have frustrated my friend's lake, are glowing with life.
The patches of water vibrantly reflect the blue sky, reminiscent of a Monet painting.
Like a healing balm, they exude a deep inner state of quietness within, bringing to mind a favorite quote that more deeply penetrates the soul:
"Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you.
Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." John 14:27
When I allow these words to fill my mind, tension and worry leave and a powerful sense of healing spreads over me. May it do the same for you and fill our world with the greatest peace of all.
