Peace of mind.

In a world of uncertainty, there are so many ways to find things that do not give us peace of mind. Ridiculous news reports, horrible stories, banks and politicos that have nothing but self serving interest at heart. That being said, there are so many comforts that can be found through simplicity.

My child, my family, a hot steaming cup of coffee are all fantastic illustrations of simple moments that bring me peace of mind. No matter what, these things will be here no matter what the world around me dishes out.

But in the wee, still hours of the morning when my heart starts racing and I become overwhelmed by all of the things around that are out of my control I can scoot closer to my fantastic husband and repeat "Our Father" over and over in my head.

Something about the man that has forever changed my life and the sanctity of God and the repetitiveness of the words is sure to bring me peace and lull me back to sleep. And no matter how good, or how bad things get, these two will always be a constant and bring me peace of mind.

Yes, yes. I am so with you on this.

You will keep in perfect peace
him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you.
Trust in the LORD forever,
for the LORD, the LORD, is the Rock eternal. Isaiah 26:3-4

I'm so glad you stopped by my blog! And so, I'm stopping by yours! I found your peace of mind and was floored b/c I do the whole scoot closer to my husband and pray until I fall back asleep "thing". :) See, we're not so different on the East and West coast! <3 Megan
