1.4.2020 – one to give away

one to give away
piece of my mind, peace of mind
one out there to find

Easy to see which one is which.

I am going to give him a ‘piece of my mind!’

I am searching for ‘peace of mind.”

Flip it.

I can give you peace of mind.

I am searching for a piece of my mind.

I lose my mind often enough.

Often at work I ask friends, “I think I have lost my mind. Have you seen it? It’s gray, about the size of a football.”‘

I can search for my mind.

Who can give peace of mind?

Mr. Emerson said, ” Nothing can bring you peace but yourself.”

Saint Paul writes, “And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Letter to the Philippians 4:7)

Told that such a peace exists, I am ready to drop everything and start that search.

I want it.

My brain screams for it.

There is a catch,

This peace isn’t there to be found.

It is a gift.

A gift from God.

“Rejoice”, writes Paul, “Do not be anxious about anything!”

Anything?

ANYTHING!

Peace of mind.

It is there … for the accepting.

Someone is making this harder than it has to be.

Must be me.
