A few things are weighing on my heart today. We do that as mothers from time to time. Life is never a simple ride and as a mom we have our hearts and minds in the worries and struggles of our children, our spouse, and ourselves. And then we worry about our neighbors, our extended family, our friends, the person we heard about with cancer, the friend of a friend who lost a job, the people in Colorado in the flood, and the rising death toll from the Pakistan earthquake. A mother’s worries extend across the globe. Our worries are near and our worries are far. How do we find peace in motherhood and in life?

* Go outside enjoy nature. My dad taught me early on to love the outdoors. There is something about crisp, fresh air, a gentle breeze, and a blazing sunset that calms the soul. I believe God created this earth for us, and seeing such beauty reminds me that there is more to my existence than the craziness of everyday stress.
I hope this helps you (and me) find some PEACE today. Leave a comment below on how you bring peace into your life. I’d love to hear from you.
P.S. I may just have a slight obsession with sunsets . . . but I think they are one of nature’s most peaceful beauties. Here’s some of my photographs of them. Have a PEACEFUL DAY!
Have a blissful day!
