Today many people are needing peace, comfort and strength in the face of losing someone near and dear to them. I pray that tranquility will touch their lives as they surrender to one of the wonders of life. May your Sunday be blessed with the peace that passes all understanding. (Philippeans 4:7)
It’s Saturday again and there may be much to do or maybe little. Be at peace with your thoughts.
Here are a couple more quotes from Kahlil Giban:
“You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.”
“Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair, but manifestations of strength and resolution.”
“You talk when you cease to be at peace with your thoughts.”
(I’m not sure about this last one.)
Profoundly and powerfully God has created into every human being the potential for inner peace and spirituality. (RHS)
May you experience profound inner peace today. Happy Sunday.
Recognizing God’s Spirit in each other would be a wonderful way of looking beyond appearances and seeing our unity.
“I will put My Spirit within you…” Ezekiel 36:27
“The Spirit within me salutes the Spirit in you”. This is one of the meanings for the word Namaste, an ancient Sanskrit greeting.
Here is one of my great-granddaughters (four years young in this photo) in the Namaste pose which she enjoys very much. Happy Sunday.
Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control…this is the fruit of the Spirit. Galatians 5:22
There are days it is evident that this fruit is an integral part of our lives, if not all of it, at least some…other days, not so much. May we experience a full crop today. Happy Sunday.
In response to a blog on March 21st about being afraid, a friend shared that she and her husband carry a copy of Go Now In Peace at all times. We at St. Andrew’s Scarborough often end our services with this lovely piece of music. I have chosen the Ottawa Police Choir for today’s rendition. It makes me think of Jesus, on this Palm Sunday, riding on a donkey to his ultimate death on the Cross a few days later. Peace be with you. Happy Sunday.
The Trappist monk Thomas Merton once said, “We cannot be at peace with others because we are not at peace with ourselves, and we cannot be at peace with ourselves because we are not at peace with God”. Peace be with you. Happy Sunday.
