Peace of Mind

I stumbled across a poem that I wrote during a small crisis about fifteen years ago. While reading it, I recognized that 11 of 15 things mentioned were from nature. This was not intentional, but it’s no accident.

 

“For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse” (Romans 1:20).

 

From my artistic side, I hope you enjoy “Peace of Mind.”

 

PEACE OF MIND

 

A smooth body of water

A child’s head on a pillow

A low setting sun

A large weeping willow

These are some things that bring peace to mind

A hallelujah chorus

A daily devotion

A palm branch in the breeze

A full moon o’er the ocean

These are some things that bring peace to mind

A calm flowing river

A waterfall fountain

A rigorous climb

An enormous mountain

These are some things that bring peace to mind

Snowflakes on a branch

White sand on the beach

A soaring bald eagle

Flying far out of reach

These are some things that bring peace to mind

Peace of mind is what I seek

Peace of mind to make me whole

Peace of mind I will not find

Until God’s peace is in my soul

This is the thing that brings peace to mind

-Jim McNeff
