David Austin's Scepter'd Isle
Peace... sometimes it seems so hard to capture when the storms of life hit. Sometimes it is just a little nagging wind here and there. Or a series of windy days that just don't seem to want to end. In many ways and in many circumstances life can come at us like the wind and try to rob us of our peace.

In my life those season and storms do come and go. The winds sometimes pick up and gust. Sometimes they just keep blowing a constant steady stream of air. If you lived in the Tri Cities you would know what I mean by that. The windy season has hit here. My roses are taking a beating, and they are just now in full bud stage. Their foliage was so fresh and perfect. Darn that wind.

But I know that some day the wind will stop. The roses will recover and bloom. Just like our lives on this planet. Sometimes we just must endure the season. In the mean time I have found that prayer really works to bring my soul to a place of peace in the midst of the storm. You really can cast all your cares on Him. He really does care for you.

When you pray do not forget the "accumulative advantage" of prayer. The effects of Prayer multiply as you pray more. John Paul Jackson

John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you that in me you might have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But be of good cheer for I have overcome the world.

In case you are curious if you read the rest of chapter you will find out who brings us peace, and Comfort (hint, hint) while we are on the planet.

Blessings to all and peace through the storms of life.

How challenging for the one who loves the roses to watch as they get beaten by that wind. Thanks for a good word today...

Thank you for the inspiring words this a.m. I don't know if your clock is right, but you were either up late or very early. Of course very early is my favorite time to pray or very late. No anything is perfect.

So true...windy seasons come and go...the Lord stays faithful and teaches us to be content in all of them. But, once we join Him in Heaven there will only be ONE season, full of LOVE, JOY, and PEACE!!!! Oh what a day that will be!!!

A rose called Sceptered Isle....lovely.

Thanks for your comment about my upcoming trip to England and Wales!

I'm taking my camera, but no cell phone camera and no Twitter and no computer....not sure I want to start twittering....I prefer not to be quite so constantly connected! But I will definitely be posting the trip after we get back.
