The longer the world stays crazy the harder it is to hold on to hope. At this point, it seems like another lifetime when everything was shutting down for “three weeks”. Here we are - years later - and it feels like the end is far from in sight.
In response to all of this, I'm focusing daily on remaining a non-anxious presence whenever you can. Fear and selfishness spreads faster than you would think. We can choose to stand in the gap and bring a sense of ease, positivity, and support when we get the chance.
I hope today's Sunday Slow Down provides you a little rest and a dash of joy and a lot of peace.
Such love for you all.
p.s. check out reader spotlight! I would love to feature you!
pocket of peace
Just a reminder that peace is powerful.
Peace is not a negative quality, the absence of violence, the pause between wars. God’s peace permeates creation, a powerful presence, “the ordering of Love.” There is nothing weak, wimpy or passive about this kind of peace." -Madeleine L'Engle
