Is peace the goal or the means to draw nearer to you?

In this Alpine meadow, far from the din of the village square, my heart relaxes and I feel you next to me.

Would the crowded market be equally worthy as the placid lakeshore, if my ears were trained to hear you even there?

I wait and pray for conditions to change that I may be with you. I dared not think that, all along, you were inviting me to change to meet conditions.

Let me feel your presence even in chaos, Lord.

(Letter #2,346)
