Shades of Gray from Grayson Co, TX #767 – PEACEFUL EZ FEELING



When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.

— Wendell Berry


Ah, the peace and beauty at Waterloo Park in Denison!     monos en theos….†…jim

  1. Absolutely lovely, Jim!!

      That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection……….                                          Philippians 3:10

    1. This scripture is for us old guys to feel undefeatable:

      Even youths shall faint and be weary,
      and young men shall fall exhausted;
      but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;
      they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
      they shall run and not be weary;
      they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:30-31
