I hope mindfulness month has helped you start off the new year in a good way. Today we end January with a beautiful song written by Bill and Gloria Gaither. Let this be a reminder that “We have this moment today.”
A Note from Genie: I was so happy when I found this song by Joe Reilly. If you enjoy it as much as I do and want to know more about Joe, including where you can see him in person or buy his music please visit his website. http://www.joereilly.org/
Every year on New Year’s Eve I ask you to join Bob and I as we pray for peace. If you have a chance to go to a group peace prayer or meditation gathering today, by all means do. There is power in individual prayer and mediation but when we gather together with shared intention it is multiplied.
So today we pray for peace…
Peace in our hearts,
Peace in our hands,
Peace in our lives,
Peace in our lands…
Sing it children!
You may be familiar with these words from the beautiful poetry of the third chapter of the Book of Ecclesiastes in the Bible. Or perhaps you are more familiar with the musical setting by Pete Seegar known as Turn, Turn, Turn or popular renditions by Judy Collins or The Byrds.
