A Good River is Good

Peace flows like a good river.  A good river is good.  Reminds me of peace that flows like a good river, blows like a good wind, and goes with us.  Peace pervades, prevails, persists, and insists on being received.  But I can resist, and have resisted, even though peace insists and peace has insisted.

Peace, released.  Peace, redemptive.  Peace, restful … in the storms.  Sometimes I don’t recognize peace when it comes: a real peace, but I don’t immediately recognize it.  Other times, I do not recognize it, because it is isn’t real peace.  It flows from the world like an angry river.  It’s something different, and I don’t know what it is.  And that is all I want to say about peace.

Peace, from the Other Side of the Trees.
