On, In and Around Mondays: Peaceful Path

Rosary in Morning Light

How do you find peace?

She has her ways. And they are sweet. Things to see, to catch the fragrance of, to touch.

Yesterday we walked. We took a new path called Peaceful Path, that wound near the highway. "So peaceful!" we laughed to each other, and decided this was someone's wishful thinking.

Reeds in Seed

Still, we found our peace. In the light. In the fading light. In each other.

These gifts from the One who made them all... were they not, in the end, a peaceful path?

On, In and Around Mondays (which partly means you can post any day and still add a link) is an invitation to write from where you are. Tell us what is on, in, around (over, under, near, by...) you. Feel free to write any which way... compose a tight poem or just ramble for a few paragraphs. But we should feel a sense of place.

Would you like to try? Write something 'in place' and add your link below.

If you could kindly link back here when you post, it will create a central meeting place. :)

It looks very peaceful. If it were up to me, these kinds of places would be my main meeting place with the One who made them all. I say this, and then, of course I start to think about the many other places I feel that peace of Presence: in an art museum, on the busy city streets, in the midst of a chaotic family gathering.

There is just no one way. It's all good, isn't it? He is there. Everywhere.

Oh so good. Peaceful. Golden peace.

No peace in my post today. ;)

There is a sense of peace just looking at the photos. I have been finding peace in a book I've read a half dozen times - resting in its worn pages.

I feel peaceful just looking at these photos...reading your lines...imagining your walk.

The peaceful path is often right at our feet, if we only look more closely.

Let the world race down the "Peaceful Path."

The rest of us can take, well, the road less traveled by.
