Desiderata Days ~ Soulful Peace

April 10, 2010

It has been almost two weeks since I have enjoyed more than an hour of silence during the daylight hours. My children have been home on Easter break for that time. Thankfully, the weather has allowed for more outdoor play (and indoor sanity for me).

Max Ehrmann says:

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul.

Breathing has been a helpful exercise for that soulful peace of which ole Max speaks. If I were being completely honest, I would say breathing has kept not only me, but also my children, alive.

Breathe the slow smooth air. Ahhhh!
