Let peace come to you, out from where it’s hiding behind the sofa and under the bed.
You have done enough for now.
Let summer surround you.
Let everything rest.

~ Karen Maezen Miller
It’s time to slow it down, find some peace. Take a moment to stop, be still, breathe, and notice the little things of beauty.
It’s summer. No need to rush.
You might miss something beautiful.
Think about it.
Where might peace come to you today?

    What a lovely poem…. so true about summer. It is becoming my favorite season. It used to be fall, and I do love fall, but the summer slow-speed of life is just lovely…
