A Windswept Calm



From church this morning, a few kangaroos dotting the grassy flat


Calm people don't let negative thoughts control their lives. 
They look at failure as a learning opportunity, and personal growth as a daily event. 
As a result, they improve in some way every single day.  

Daniel Wallen


Just as today's brisk autumn winds are making music in the sky, so this season as a family is somewhat windswept. Peace will come in due course. In the midst of this there is definitely opportunity for personal growth every single day - and to appreciate the beauty which only the wind can make.

Love your picture and the text with it. I was just thinking how absolutely amazing and unbelievable it would be to see some Kangaroos crossing a meadow here in this part of the world. It would certainly be in the evening news.

Such true words from Daniel Wallen as well. Thank you for sharing them here and reminding us.

I hope your family is OK and I wish you all a wonderful new week.

Marian
