A Path of Peace

A Path of Peace

**********************

Sometimes the path ahead seems clear

Yet other times it’s a blur

Faith marks out the parameters

but sometimes it’s details I’d prefer

~

So I seek to walk the balanced way

and move forward one day at a time

Seeking Divine wisdom as I go

and in this method His peace I find

~

Now as I ponder the way it is

that I must walk close by His side

my heart swells with the thought of Love

that counts His followers as His bride.

Our family went for an evening walk together here in Comox.

Our oldest stayed home as he wanted to do some garden work

in the coolness of the day.

Wow!

I’m blessed that he wants to help out with the landscaping.

I wrote this poem for one of my other blogs,

and it reminded me of what I like to post on greenlightlady;

I have decided to share it here instead.

I’ve missed posting here,

but I knew that I needed to take a different path for a spell.

Do you ever wish the path of life came with a GPS?

Or do you prefer unexpected adventures?

I like a mix.

  1. Lovely photos – as always, Wendy πŸ™‚

    I don’t use GPS – not even when driving in strange countries. Yes, I like to get lost and find my way back. With GPS, much escapes the eyes, I reckon.

    And you know what I mean πŸ™‚

    Peace,

  2. So beautiful, Wendy… both the poem and the photos. So moving, and I love the adventure, but it’s also very good to know God’s boundaries, and the ones that He’s placed around me too.

    Many blessings, my friend!

    Love,
    Cheryl

    1. I agree, Cheryl, that his boundaries are good – very good! Some of the examples in the Bible of what happens when we ignore them are always motivating to keep in mind.

      Warm wishes ~ Wendy xo

  5. I’ve missed your posts, and am so glad you are sharing again here! I was talking with L today as we drove in the car about trusting God when we aren’t sure why things are the way they are. He has been struggling with our family’s move, but I am trying to listen, help, encourage, pray, and guide. We can’t see all the details, but we have seen and still see enough of our Father to know He is good and that He loves us. I pray that my dear son will keep seeking and finding that path of peace! Blessings–Alison

    1. I suspect that listening is probably the most helpful thing you are doing to help your dear son. Males tend to want our listening heart more than our words. Your godly life is speaking volumes to him already. Keep up the good work/walk, dear friend.

      With my oldest son I am trying to follow this pattern; it’s so hard not to try and jump in and attempt to fix what I truly cannot. But we know the Maker of the mountains we can’t climb, and our actions point to Him. Let’s continue praying and pointing. Good work, Alison!

  6. A very lovely photo and poem! I like the greens in the first photo. The blue-green of the trees, with the lighter, yellow-green of the ground vegetation. Thank you for sharing this restful post.

    God bless you and yours! πŸ™‚ Beth

  7. Always glad to get a word and “picture” from you.
    I have always yearned for details and itinerary. More recently I find that what I taught for years is true, if you are at peace with where you and what you are doing you are already where God wants you to be. Since I am at peace I’ll take that as a divine “Yes”. For now a “Home Sweet Home” mat will do! πŸ™‚

    1. What a wonderful comment you have written! I have learned the hard way, very recently, to be at peace with where I am. Peace rolled in when I finally realized that God is in this life I NOW live. His presence is present in the here and now.

      Your part of Canada sure has had a rough time, weather wise, this year… I hope your place came through it okay.

      1. Well, we lost most of our garden.
        The corn, sugar beets and some beans are severely damaged, the tomatoes show stress, but the hay is good! I saw a big field of scallions this week which looked good, too.

  8. I was really blessed by this poem today, Wendy (and the beautiful photos)–thank you!! I would SO love a GPS–Yes!! But I realize it might impact the whole idea of “faith”, so I’ll just lean hard into HIM. God bless you BIG. love, sis Cj

I enjoy a word in season, so I'd love it if you added an apple to the bowl.
