Tranquil Sunday


Despite all the awful things going on in the world, there is still beauty all around us.

Step into any church and one may find gorgeous stained glass windows, statues and other symbols of peace and love.

The one shown at the top of the post is in a Zion Lutheran Church in western Massachusetts.

It is possible to find tranquility in the midst of chaos because it begins with our thinking as well as what is in our hearts.

It is my heartfelt hope that today you will find tranquility and joy in the mundane.

WHAT DOES TRANQUILITY MEAN TO YOU?

I can answer that easily - I think it is my home - when everyone is getting along. Harmony. Happy Sunday.

.. tranquillity and harmony for me is when I have ticked off the things I need to do while mentally chatting to God .... beds made, washing up done, bathroom clean , house tidy etc....
Then I can cope/enjoy whatever the day may bring ...

Knowing that my family is safe brings me peace of mind. Also, feeling grateful for all I have brings contentment and thus tranquility.

Hope you are feeling better...

Amen! So true.

Tranquility...the rest that comes from completing your part of the task.

Good question. I find peace at home, with family, and through my faith in God. It is a blessing to know that we are not alone on this journey.
