*BlogBlast for Peace
This morning, as I sit here staring at the computer, trying to decide where to go with this post, I'm smelling the hint of rain (just a sprinkle) in the air, mingling with the sweet basil I planted this weekend. The smell of basil has followed me around the house the last several days because every time my little WonderDog gets a chance, he puts his face right in it and breathes deeply. He loves sweet smelling herbs nearly as much as I do.
It's such a beautiful, quiet morning. I know this is my only chance for peacefulness today, until I crawl back in bed this evening. Correction, this is my only chance at quiet today. In April, I wrote about discovering that peace isn't what I thought it was. Well, so be it.
I want peace to be this picture perfect, pastoral scene. Or maybe a quiet beach, looking out at the sunrise. And it's not. And that's okay.
So, on this momentarily quiet and peaceful Peace Day, dona nobis pacem. I hope God grants you the peace that you need, the peace in your heart and in your mind. And I hope He gives you the strength to smile and say "So be it" when what is in front of you doesn't look like your typical ideal of peace.
Blessings....dona nobis pacem.
