No Leaf Clover

There's a song by Metallica called No Leaf Clover.  It's a very cynical song saying that the light at the end of your tunnel is only a freight train coming your way.  I don't think things are really that bad but glib memes when you're struggling can certainly be more annoying than helpful.  Faith to me is more than positive reinforcement...it's essential to life.  Peace that God offers all too often passes understanding...we can have circumstances not conducive to peace but His peace surpasses circumstance.  Peace is like a mountain blossom in a sea of green grass
It's a bit of color in an unexpected place
It's plain to some...beautiful to me
God's peace is a precious thing
It's to be cherished
I found peace on the well named Stillwater area
Here silence is truly golden
The only sounds are wind and babbling brooks and wildlife
The mountains silent majesty testify of God
These lonely roads beckon
Will you notice the small treasures?
Or will life's troubles block your view?

  1. the tests of life God sends us, provides a greater strength to endure the next set of tests, and with the yoke of Christ they become easier....... the belief lightens the load.
