Nicely, hi there yet again. I have been meditating and pondering a great deal about peace these times, so it will be our favourable word this week.
Ralph Waldo Emerson, a single of my preferred scribes, aptly wrote of peace: “Nothing can convey you peace but your self.”
At each individual convening of our GFWC Florida Woman’s Club conventions, we be part of arms and sing, “Let there be peace on Earth, and permit it begin with me.”
Every time we sing it with each other, my coronary heart skips a beat and I really feel at peace, recognizing the quest forward as I journey again to my beloved Crystal River and start off to satisfy the pledge I created in 1962 when I became a portion of the Woman’s Club as a Junior Woman’s Club member.
As a result of the many years, our journey has taken us alongside a winding volunteer path of services to those people in have to have of scholarships, tender-
loving kindness in treatment facilities, Band-Aids used to blistered marching band students’ toes that we chaperoned, or offered a listening ear and a calming reassurance that everything’s “gonna” be Ok to people whose problems have confused them, and so several other peacemaking approaches.
We uncovered from Mom Theresa all about the oneness we embraced when she wrote: “I am a single. I am only one particular. I are unable to do anything. But I can do anything.” And we did. And we will carry on to do so.
With the energy of love inside us, we can make a variance in our neighborhood and further than via peaceful, intentional functions of loving kindness, in provider to mankind.
