This poem, by Wendell Berry is true for so many of us and is especially timely during these current circumstances. On this 5oth Anniversay of Earth Day we hope the very best for all. May you and your families find peace and calm in His creation of nature, as you witness it in a walk in the woods or as you sit quietly on your back yard deck or front yard
porch watching and listening to the sights and sounds of nature.
When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their live with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
