Do we ever need to hear this right now

"Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit.
Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever,
even if your whole world seems upset."

~Saint Francis de Sales

Lord, our whole world does indeed seem upset right more ways than one. By Your grace, may we not lose our inner peace, despite the chaos and confusion all around us.

Thank you for posting this, Claire! It's something I always need to keep in is so busy and can be overwhelming sometimes. Today was lovely outside, so I took a long walk down to the waterfront with a book in my purse, and sat on a bench by the beautiful water reading. At one point I stopped reading and just gazed out at the harbor leading into the Chesapeake Bay, gazing at the floating sailboats (and now wanting to go sailboating!), and it felt so peaceful, I didn't want to leave!! I took some pretty pictures, I'll try to post them soon.

It was great chatting the other day! I did receive both your mailings, and on the same day! Thank you! :)

Your bosom friend,
