Peace


Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee ( Isa. 26:3 ) A happy life is not built up of tours abroad and pleasant holidays, but of little clumps of violets noticed by the roadside, hidden away almost so that only those can see them who have God's

peace and love in their hearts; in one long continuous chain of little joys, little whispers from the spiritual world, little gleams of sunshine on our daily walk.

Morning Patsy, This verse is so true. Now that life/circumstances have slowed down, I treasure every clump of flowers, every rainbow, sunrise, sunset and every blogging friendship. Your friendship is much appreciated. Have a wonderful Sunday.

Beautiful verse, and beautiful little violets. Happiness comes from the marvels of God's beautiful Nature.

Sorry I'm late here.

Hugs,

Renie
