Peace in the Land
"I will give you peace in the land, and you will be able to sleep with no cause for fear." Leviticus 26:6a (NLT)
Driving down Hwy. 72, in northeast New Mexico, early in the morning on my way home to Lawton, I gawked at the scenes being created by the fog, the clouds, and the sunshine breaking through. When I saw this landscape I could take no more. I pulled into an entrance to a rancher's pasture, tiptoed through the mud as quickly as I could to get tripod and camera set before the light at the foot of the distant mesa disappeared. I barely made it. The air was totally still, all sounds were muted, and peace hung in the air. My thoughts turned to God as I partook of tranquility.
