Peace be Still… (by Hannah Alexander)

It has come to my attention that the novel I am writing at this time would work quite well as a novel dealing with the pandemic. It wasn’t begun that way, but it is about medical research. But honestly, I asked myself if it was something I’d want to read, and it is not. I don’t want to be reminded of the stress the whole world is enduring.

So instead I want to share my “whatsoever” thoughts and pictures. I hope you can see the pictures. To me they bring back memories of happier times, of tranquil days when the only worries I had were about stepping on the right part of the trail so I didn’t go hurtling into the lake, or the river, or onto my face.

Or too close to the moose.

Or into the roses.

Or anger the beavers.

I know I’ve said this before, but I have these words on a plaque to remind myself to think about things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, praiseworthy. This is from Philippians 4:8. It’s one of my favorite passages, and now, especially, I need these words. I hope they help you, too.

    Your reminder was like a breath of fresh air in this time of turmoil. Let’s look at the grass and leaves, the moon and the stars and the sunshine and the rain and be still and know that God is in charge. Then Praise Him and ask for His guidance and listen for His answers. Thank you Hannah!! I loved your post!

  2. Thanks for sharing this. The pictures were beautiful. And it was a nice break from all the depressing things on the news. That verse is a favorite of mine as well, and definitely needed right now. ❤️

    Seeing a moose is on my bucket list. So beautiful and we all need a break from these depressing times. I’m focusing on humor.
