Peace That Passes Human Understanding

So much has happened in the last three weeks, that I did not realize how long it has been since I entered a post. Most prevalent during this stretch was a bout with pneumonia from which I have been healed (the only residual side effect is that I am easily fatigued).

Even though it has been very busy, I am having difficulty recollecting just how this time passed. It has been good to spend a considerable amount of time with my wife, Kathy, and learn afresh how beautiful a woman she is. Much of the time has been spent in prayer, with an emphasis on listening to God rather than talking. It is amazing the peace that accompanies in allowing God to speak to me. It is out of this world and confirms that in the midst of difficulties of life, all is well in Heaven.

The irony of this peace and assurance is that it does not come in measurable quantities. I can give you five pounds of peace or a gallon of assurance. It is the lack of earthly measurement that proclaims that these traits are not of human origin.
