Summer's Peace

I have photographed the chapel in the field behind us many times, and I love how the trees framed it this summer. This is a close-up, as the chapel is a bit further away then this photo shows, but I wanted to get another shot to remember our view of it. The field behind us will be getting developed in the months to come, and eventually new houses will block our view of the field and the chapel. Time often brings changes, and this is one change I am not looking forward to, yet I understand it and will adjust. We knew when we moved here it would happen one day; we just hoped it would be several more years before we lost the view.
Hopefully, there will be several more moments to photograph the field and the chapel before they fade out of our sight.
Many times, we have left from a visit with our extended family members in the Midwest with our memories and photographs to keep us until we see them again. I cherish these photographs, for they help to keep my memory of this time together clearer.
I have found many if the words of our Savior a comfort when change happens in my life. I share these words in John 14:27 as a reminder that He alone brings us peace. In this world of change, He is our one and only constant.


Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.
I do not give to you as the world gives.
Do not let your hearts be troubled
and do not be afraid.
John 14:27
