Living the Mission
This post is from my soon-to-be-19-year-old granddaughter’s blog. For someone so young, she possesses amazing faith, much wisdom, and deep love and passion for Christ.
Advent Peace – Slow Me Down Lord
Slow me down, O Prince of Peace.
Help me to be still . . . in the silence . . .
to wait patiently for your coming.
So often I push too hard, trying to make things happen.
Help me to remember that in God’s time, all will be well.
Even in the swirling of creation, God chose to “rest” . . .
to wait. In this quiet resting I am more aware of the gifts of
God’s grace and mercy, and I can truly be at peace.
Help me to fall into the quiet space where silence dwells . . .
to feel the breath of the spirit resting upon me.
In this circle of silence there is safety . . . there is peace. Amen
~ Anna Lin

Despite terrible shootings, corruption, and greed, events similar to these seen in the following photos are still happening all over the world every day!
I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Psalm 27:13 ✝
