Finding Peace…

IMG_168748210801545

Surviving adversity requires strength. Where your strength comes from is entirely up to you, however, mine comes from God.

Psalms Chapter 121

1 (A Song of degrees.) I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.

2 My help [cometh] from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.

Of late I’ve been experiencing a sense of peace and calm that I haven’t felt in a very long time — so long that it was almost unrecognizable —  I thought I was ill!  But then, when no symptoms of illness presented and I realized my attitude in certain situations was different than normal, I began to understand what was happening — I was changing!

Remember how scared, out of place and disoriented you felt the first week at your new job? But when you finally started figuring things out the tension subsided and you started to settle in and feel more comfortable? Well that sense of comfort is what I’m feeling right now. The pieces are finally starting to fit together, I am finally understanding the role I’m supposed to play and I feel less overwhelmed by my responsibilities. I can finally breathe a sigh of relief for I have found a sense of peace.

Psalms Chapter 30

11 Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;

12 To the end that [my] glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.

Thank you God for bestowing this mercy upon me. I am forever grateful!

In the Pursuit of Happiness

IMG_3789While I was at university in Edinburgh my favourite haunt was, without a doubt, Peter’s Yard in Quartermile. It is just around the corner from the university library and getting lunch there would be my daily treat during exam and dissertation periods when I barely did anything other than sit in the library, little did I realise back then how much I would miss those days when I started work!

Peter’s Yard specialises in the most delicious and fresh Scandinavian food with a wonderful choice of open sandwiches, salads, soups and now super thin crust pizzas in their sister restaurant just around the corner. Their breakfasts were also amazing and came on an old fashioned tin tray with fresh orange juice, fresh sourdough, cheeses, yogurt, fruit compote and jams.

Whenever I’m back in Edinburgh now, Peter’s Yard is the first place I go and the high ceilings, bright and airy…

Myths of the Mirror

Most writers have learned the importance of reading their words aloud. It’s advice I heeded early on and am happy to pass along.

Writing works on myriad levels. On one level, it’s the mechanical delivery of a story, the typing of words according to rules. It’s fingers on keyboards, reams of paper and editing drafts. Beneath the surface, writing is meaning-making through narrative, tapping universal themes and archetypes that existed before man first etched his carvings into cave walls.

As an art form, writing has the ability to transport a reader into another world. We paint with words on the mind’s canvas, compose the music of language, stir smells, tastes, and tactile impressions. The goal is emotional immersion, being present in the experience.

I have an irksome sensitivity to the sounds of words, the rhythm of phrases and sentences. When I search for the right word, it’s not just the meaning I’m chasing…

Secrets of War

Pick your battles.
Sometimes it is necessary to retreat
To give your opponent the illusion
That you’ve surrendered.
It is then, when their guard is down,
That you launch your final attack
And the victory is yours for the taking!

Lyrics, Music is Oxygen

Ceasefire

Lyrics:

[Verse 1: Luke]
How do we save a life
Pointing fingers?
How can we end the fight
This way?
When blame is the truth we’re preaching?
And lies are what we’re believing?
No one ever wins
When the goal is to settle the score

[Chorus: Joel]
One by one we will call for a ceasefire
One by one we will fight for a better end
One by one we could rewrite the headlines
Standing side by side
One by one, love is building an empire
One by one, reaching out to our enemies
One by one we will make it to the finish line
Standing side by side
Ceasefire

[Verse 2: Luke]
I will be the first to say
I’m far from perfect
But grace was made for those who don’t
Deserve it
So easy to cast the first stone
It’s harder to search your own soul
No one ever wins
When the goal is to settle the score

[Chorus: Joel]

One by one we will call for a ceasefire
One by one we will fight for a better end
One by one we could rewrite the headlines
Standing side by side
One by one, love is building an empire
One by one, reaching out to our enemies
One by one we will make it to the finish line
Standing side by side
(2x)
Ceasefire

[Bridge: Luke]
Teach us how to live humbly
Love unconditionally
Transform our hurt into hope
And grant us Your peace
(2x)

[Chorus: Joel]
One by one we will call for a ceasefire
One by one we will fight for a better end
One by one we could rewrite the headlines
Standing side by side
One by one, love is building an empire
One by one, reaching out to our enemies
One by one we will make it to the finish line
Standing side by side
(2x)
Ceasefire
