The “Peace and Quiet”

In walking from one room to another this morning, I noticed a drastic change. I was ‘so moved’ to a place where I could just stand still and hear… nothing!  No trucks, tractors, or cars; No people, animals, or things… No sound or movement of any kind, not even the trees were moving, or the wind blowing. Everything stood still for me, or at the very least, all things were at a stand-still.   It was beautiful!  It was amazing!  And I knew it’s what God intended for me… and you.  

I had finally arrived ‘at Peace’.  Then, without warning, I heard a room fan (that’s purpose is to propel the warm air from the kitchen wood stove –that was cranking out heat just days before– to the living room), become louder and louder.

What an offense it was to my ears… and every other part of me. I’d finally found ‘peace and quiet’ and then it was gone.  I went over and shut off the fan.  And for a moment I was at peace and quiet again.  “Ah!”  But sadly within a short time, another rose up in its place, and I could hear the sound of the refrigerator… get louder and louder and louder.

What a great experience and wonderful message this was for me, but I am going to leave the rest up to your interpretation of it… with God.  😎

And I will leave you, on His note….

“Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (John 14:27)

    Peace, peace, to a peaceful heart
    The Lord above has made a start
    To bring us closer to His hearth
    Of warm love and grace
    That we never part
    But grow closer to Him
    In understanding His ways
    The true ways
    The ways of His days
    When all was possible
    And can be again
    Peace, peace, to a peaceful heart…
