We could all use a little peace in our lives right now

This morning in my daily Bible reading, I read in Matthew the story of Jesus stilling the storm.  

Matthew 8:23-27

23 Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him. 24 Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. 25 The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!” 26  He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm. 27 The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!”

Wouldn't you know this short passage brought to mind a church song from my childhood? 

No matter where a person stands on politics right now, peace is hard to come by.  No matter what you believe, I hope you have a refuge from the storm that's going on in our country at present, whether it's Jesus, meditation, or a nice walk in the woods.  Build a model airplane, go fishing, make cookies: but find something to still the troubled waters flooding into all our lives.  We won't find it on the news or Facebook, that's for sure.

Today I need to call the doctor's office about a UTI.  Looks like 2021 is the gift that keeps on giving.



  1. Troubled waters
    We’re pushing through
    Continue onward
    Toward the shore..

  2. Hope you are ok and that 2021 gives you only good things.

  3. I just had an UTI and it was miserable. Hope it can be cleared up ASAP. I'm intending to make some Moose Farts soon. Making desserts is very therapeutic for me, although not so great for my waistline.

    1. I've had many of them throughout my life. Different symptoms than when I was younger, but it isn't fun,
      for sure.


I love comments!
