Serenity

"Serenity"
Photograph by: Karen Holmes

"She knew how to keep her serenity..."
- Jenny Stevnings

Sometimes your heart is caught off guard and you feel as if you have touched the hem of a place much closer to heaven ... that is serenity to me, and I find I am able to keep it best when I remember to pray. Today, a prayer of mine for another was answered in a most unusual and touching way... and, tonight, I feel not only humbled, but also sweetly serene and profoundly grateful that God listened and responded in ways I could never have imagined... ah... sweet serenity... hope has come to visit with me.

(jenny, thank you for your words and inspirational artwork yesterday...they linger beautifully)

About Me

My photo
I have always been inspired by my Grandfather's particular generosity and encouragement, along with his love for others and nature. His spirit lives on, and the influence is quietly with me as I write and share. This is my small offering that I pray will bless others and allow them to become Simply Inspired. warmly, karen -xok.
Each day provides its own gifts.
