Wow! Has it been windy here today! It’s felt like a good ol’ Atlantic Canadian Nor’Easter.
Kind of comical actually, the chickens wouldn’t eat their feed in a part of the yard where we normally feed them, because no sooner did they turn the corner, but that the wind was pushing them back down the driveway… Full-sized adult birds weren’t heavy enough to stay put!
Enough about the birds though, here are…
- Daylight Saving Time: Actually, one more thing about the birds before I move on. We went to DST on Sunday (Yay!! One less hour spent at home! 😉 ) meaning that it’s darker, longer, in the morning. …That means that I was up before Maurice serenaded us. The other benefit, of course, is that the evenings are a bit longer.
- Game-Time: I may or may not have played some Minecraft with Timo & Sophie this afternoon. After teaching some more virtual classes with Angers students this morning, and them spending time on their schoolwork… they were feeling a need to unwind. Timo was playing Minecraft and since I wanted to hang with him a bit…. Minecraft it was. As Dominic would say… “It’s been a minute.” since I played that. As in … years!
- John 14.26-27: 26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. 27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
I love this.
The peace that the Lord gives, is not given like the peace we can experience in the world – short lived & often circumstance-dependent. No, when the Lord gives us peace… it’s of a different nature and as long as we cling to him and to the peace that he gives… our heart need not be troubled nor afraid.
Isn’t that really what we all need: Peace that’s not dependent on the ever changing circumstances around us? It comes from the comforter – the Holy Ghost
May you experience that peace today!
