A Peaceful Resting Place

There is a river that begins at the heart of God;
It flows to quiet meadowlands and to where the road is hard.
The river moves through mountains to reach the heart of man
And nourishes it with kindness as only His mercy can.
The river is refreshing; it washes and renews;
It brings the Spirit's pressence as gently as the dew.
The river is annointing, it's compassion and it's grace;
The river is a healing stream and a peaceful resting place.
author ...Roy Lessin
Taking time today to rest and relax, knowing I need refreshment and grace, to face the week ahead.


Wishing each of you an enjoyable Sunday.

Amen, as we share this reflection together. God's church is a community of people, sharing, praising, and giving thanks. Blessings

As I was looking through my journals I saw how many times God bring the words river and water to my mind. This post confirms what he is saying.

What a gift! Thank you.
