WHAT PEACE LOOKS LIKE. (TO ME, ANYWAY)

Today, as I peered through the camera lens & saw what I was about to capture, something dawned on me. The water was flat--nearly a motion in it. The atmosphere was calm--not even a breeze. And the combination of the two is what I'd surmise as peace on Earth: still breezes, still waters. You know what? This snapshot is also a picture of what my soul can look like if I truly aspire to let Jesus reign in it. A heart that is His is a life that's at peace. I pray that your day will have the blessing of Psalm 23 in it. For the psalmist wrote:  "He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul."

Miss Heather,
OMG, Where have you been my whole life? You are like An Angel from Heaven; most definite gift from our father. I have been reading your stuff and wow what an inspiration. One should not covent thy neighbor i know but, how i had your beauty, wisdom, your zest, ... I am what you call the procrastinater, and dying desperately to be the achiever.. I see so many with the willpower, strength to do what they know they need and do all it takes to go for their dreams. Me i just have no self esteem, people pleaser no matter what cost to me.. After so much I am tired and been trying to figure out what are my dreams as i have been so busy making everyone else happy i don't know what makes me happy. I am a mess... Pray for me Miss Heather.. I will continue to read your posts.. God Bless :)
