May there be peace in your soul

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and rightdoing there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.”

Rumi

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:6-7

    The quote from Rumi gives me much on which to ponder. The quote from Philippians is one of my favourites. And the photo is absolutely beautiful. Thanks for putting this together for us! Have a beautiful day Julie.

    Your photo jewels makes me think how God sees everything, and how a simple ‘weed’ can promote His glory. Oh that could revere the insignificant, and magnify the worth of He who is above all.

    Short words you bring, but long on wonder.

    • Thank you CS–seeing that sunset through the sea oats was so humbling, so masterful—there were truly no words that I could add that would add any more umph or power—a feeble and failed attempt on my part to try and convey the Majesty any more than the mere image and a mere thought. . .

        Sure, but I’m guessing you noticed the typo, ”oh that We could….’

        What a tragic loss though for a soul to go through life without the inspiration of the divine.

  3. you do remember that I am the queen of typos do you not!!!
    I can read between any kind of line, error, misspelling, glitch, missing word—you name it 🙂
    Amen to the sheer tragedy of living without the ability to marvel at the wonderment of God’s glorious creation!!
    Hugs CS
