Remembering 9-11

    Blue Heron - 9/11/15 Earl Brown Park

"My heart is beating in the peace of God."

Surrounding me is all the life that God created in His Love. It calls to me in
every heartbeat and in every breath; in every action and in every thought.
Peace fills my heart, and floods my body with the purpose of forgiveness."
                        Lesson 267, A Course in Miracles

On the drive to the park this morning, Main Street was lined with American flags.  The lake was still, the birds on land, waiting. Flocks of ibis and ducks ran toward us in hopes of a meal.  They peacefully congregated as we doled out handfuls of dry nuggets.  Satisfied, they walked on and so did we.  Elliot pointed out a beautiful blue heron on the hill, but I couldn't see it at first.  That's because I was looking in the wrong place, on the other side of the lake, thinking he meant "over there", but then I spotted it. Much closer, on our side, at the waters edge.    With the zoom, I captured the heron's  peaceful stance as she patiently waits, intent on the goal.  

May we be as focused on the goal of peace today, recognizing that it is much closer than we think, it is in our every thought and action.  Our prayers go out to all the families who lost loved ones on September 11th. 

Love and joyful blessings,
