Wordful Wednesday- Imagine

♪Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
and no religion, too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace♪
I was walking from the gym to work, when I stopped to take this picture with my phone. I wanted to capture the peacefulness of the morning. People everywhere were on their way to work, or school, or they were preparing for holiday shopping, or doing chores at home. Everyone, busy doing, something. And for that brief moment, I felt calm and serene, in the realization that world peace is all around us. It's not something to wish for, on a holiday list, or pray for in church on Sunday. World peace is all around us. It's there in the lakes and trees. It's in the birds and flowers, and in the sky and air around us. We just have to step out of our busy lives, and look around.
This year, instead of worrying about what to put on your list, or fretting about getting someone the perfect gift, stop and look at the world around you. don't stress over the little things. Share your moments of peace with those you love. Find a way to make a stranger smile, even if only for a moment. Share in laughter and music, and share love.
We can't solve the world's problems, but we can make our lives a little more peaceful.
♪Imagine, no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
sharing all the world♪
