Calming Beauty

Today is going to be a very busy day, so I would like to begin this day with the wisdom of Saint Francis.

(click to enlarge)
“Never be in a hurry;

do everything quietly and in a calm spirit.


Do not lose your inner peace

for anything whatsoever,
even if your whole world seems upset.”                   
                                 - Saint Francis de Sales

So true not to lose your inner peace. You are the only one that can control your inner peace. Don't allow circumstances to cause you to lose it. Great Post!

I love that little piece with the lavender flowers, so pretty. Thank you for these words. I did lose my inner peace today and worked hard to get it back.
