While visiting a nearby city to make a hospital visit, my husband and I decided to go to a park we had never been to.
Having searched online for parks in the area, we found one that looked interesting.
Finding a place to leave our car, we walked along the water’s edge.
Many people were enjoying the surroundings, as well, and we were blessed to see families out with baby strollers and toddlers and couples sitting together in the late afternoon sun.
The air was cool and the atmosphere was calm.
At one point, we noticed a grandfather as he held a very small child up to the rod iron fence and let the boy experience the wonderment of throwing a stick down into the water.
A woman on a bench was accompanied by a white curly-haired dog.
A group of ducks swam together on the gently rippled water.
It was peaceful.
Jesus gave us words about peace:
“Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.”
