Tranquil Thoughts

Do not let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace.

There are times when we are still, listening to the beat of our own heart in harmony with the universe. Refusing to surrender to the chaos which tries to engulf our soul

In appreciation I lift my head to gaze at the skylight

My eyes caressed by the radiant moonlight

Blessings as ephemeral clouds dance on the horizon

Slowly moving as if serenading my wanting heart

Lifting my arms to embrace these twinkling stars

Pressing them closely with the warmth of affection

Wrapped in this blanket of peace and serenity

I linger not wishing to leave this godly place

Created within my own loving heart

I call it my own through sweet surrender

Basking, secure in the harmony of benevolence

Knowing that I am being consecrated and sanctified

Through the gift of purest grace and love

I bow my head and softly whisper "Amen"

you're a mechanic of soul soothing words in that you get down to the nuts and bolts of the way the world should or could be ticking over- in harmony Barb. Keep dancing on the keyboard of life twinkle toes.
