Thankful Thursday: Peace

does not mean
to be in a place
where there is no noise,
or hard work,
it means to be in the midst of those things,
and still be calm in your heart.

"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you:
not as the world gives, give I to you.
Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."
John 14:27
Today's prompt is wisdom.
Have a GREAT Thankful Day!!
My goal this year is to soak it up, to bloom where I am planted, and enjoy the ride... Counting my many blessings naming them one by one... Join Spiritually Unequal Marriage, or Women Taking A Stand to join in or see more.

That is truly the "Pease that passeth understanding." and unless you experience it you cannot understand it.

For some reason you blog on my sidebar hasn't updated for 2 weeks!! I was thinking it was a little odd that you hadn't posted in such a long time.
