Finding Peace

IMG_1804 (2)

What this world needs is more PEACE!  Early in the morning, after a rain, when a lot of mankind is still asleep – I find peace in my yard, with my camera – soaking up nature’s quiet beauty.  I love spider webs covered in rain drops.  Intricate webs created by spiders that many people fear and detest.  Yet, if you venture out on an early, wet morning – these webs come alive with a look of gleaming pearls.

“Don’t let people pull you into their storms.  Pull them into your peace.”

My brother was a person who was either on top of the world or down in a deep pit of despair.  He is gone now, but not forgotten.  I loved him very much and I miss him. Yet, I often told him when he tried to drag me down to an unhappy place – “Stay in that hole of misery you have created, but don’t expect me to join you.”

Our esteemed past president Ronald Reagan said – “Peace is not the absence of conflict, it is the ability to handle conflict by peaceful means.”

My husband is constantly watching the news – which is something I try not to do.  So, I venture out into God’s beautiful world and soak up nature’s quiet peace. Try sitting silently in your garden and let peace enfold you in its arms.  Ah – sheer bliss.

“Peace is its own reward.”  Mahatma Gandhi

  1. I find in our world today, I need more and more peace. Like you, I find it in nature and often in my own back yard. I too like to see the intricacy of spider webs. They’re really neat when there’s been a frost and they’re coated with rime.

  2. We have so much in common Peggy,, Loved this post. And yes, depression can be pit you have to climb out of all by yourself.. It’s a hard climb, but you were right in being firm with your late brother.. Happiness is a state of being..
    Peace is spending time in my garden too… Nothing beats that very early morning peace, when mists cling with morning dew to spiders webs..
    Your hubby sounds like mind, has to watch the news no matter, but even he this year what with ( Brexit) has tuned out a bit ..
    I escape into the garden or go listen to music in another room…
    May we all discover our quiet moments to find ourselves within peaceful pockets of love..
