Order and Peace

I am grateful for order and peace today.

Everyone I know is grateful for order and peace today.

Everyone I don’t even know all over the world is grateful for order and peace today.


After setting up a list of errands to do, we were rudely interrupted by a problem with the engine of our truck.

Since it had sounded and felt just fine when we returned at 11 PM the night before, it just didn’t make any sense.

When we pulled over and my husband opened the hood of the truck, we discovered a collection of straw and leaves that were made into a nest.

There was also a wire that had been chewed through, a spark plug wire.

We cleaned out the next and drove the truck to the auto shop.

In two hours we were ready to roll once again.

So, we were behind on our errands, but grateful for the immediate help.

We got the most important things done, and then left for a conference.

Filling ourselves up with calmness and appreciation for the order and timely help, we were able to have a peaceful drive, make different arrangements for our stay, and to be involved in a very lively and productive conference.

We have come back with more information, contacts, and a feeling of many needs being met, ours and other people’s.

I am grateful for this new approach which I had only heard about in my studies.

I now have access to the calm and order and peace which are now available to me through gratitude and expectation of support from wherever it can reach me best.
