The Fight for Calm

 Always a growing list--
 you know the kind where you cross off one thing
 and then two magically appear when you look again? 
Or maybe even three things to replace the one you checked off?

Well it seems life is always like this -
 unless you are in the Outer Banks on a week's vacation-- and we are not.

So instead- some Garden Shalom- peace to you this day.

Ah mid summer Garden Phlox

the Zebra Grass in full sun

 the contrasts of color

the soft garden colors- Balloon flowers and fading hydrangea

the rudbeckia and the phlox

and a bit of container fun

So as a day winds down....this verse from the Message-

"Before you know it,
 a sense of God's wholeness, 
everything coming together for good, 
will come down and settle you."
 Philippians 4:7

 And this prayer- 

God, you are my peace. Help me this evening
 to release each problem, every duty, 
the crunch of so much to do and so little time to your capable care.
 Keep me focused on you. 
In my rush and hurry- 
settle me down with your Shalom peace. 
In the name of Jesus. Amen
