Peace

When you think about a peaceful place...what do you imagine that to be? Some people think about a quiet library, or a sunny window seat in a still house. I'm sure others want an open park, or even a loud mall to sit in...so they can get lost in the noise (just tune out). I have a few places that come to my mind when I think of a peaceful place. One is my house just around one in the morning. Everyone and every thing is asleep. If I could function during that time of the night I would love it! Everything is quiet and...yes peaceful.
My other favorite place is this picture. I have always loved the southwest... the sandstone, and the cactus all of the scrub-brush. Snakes, lizards, hot air, DRY air,the huge blue sky. I also enjoy the mountains, but I really love the dessert/prairie landscape. I just always have.
I would like to share a Bible verse with you today... Isaiah 26:3 "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee." So, wherever you go to find a little peace in your life, just remember that God is the only place where we can find true peace... even in the mall. ;)

Ive been following you around everywhere today! Every blog Ive visited you are there also, and you give a comment like five seconds before I do! Ive had a ball trying to guess where you will be next, but Im on my last one. Thank you for the comment. I think the whole world is in need of peace, universal.

Nice post! I like it.
I guess I didn't know you liked the dessert stuff so much. I don't really. I can appreciate it, but that's about it.
I wouldn't feel very peaceful in that photo.

I knew you loved the desert environment. I like to sit where I can watch the sky and clouds.
