Peace on Earth 13 May 2008

This poem by M. Butterflies Katz expresses so well the longing I feel and, with words, touches a cord in my soul:

Peace on Earth
by M. Butterflies Katz

For many years I have longed for a place,
safely tucked away from the human race.

Where quiet mingles with songs of a bird,
Where serenity is all that is heard.

To feel the calm that God meant us to know
To cleanse, purify, and spiritually grow.

To be with nature and to grow more gentle,
A spot, that with time, becomes sentimental.

It is here that Peace on Earth begins with me
in the hope that it will somehow, someday be.

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
