Peace Yet found

From a long walk in 2014:
On reading 2 Peter 3:11-14


We Know When there is Peace Yet Found

Upon morning routines and walks here and there,
upon reading words open and inviting,
we seek this holy place.
How long shall we search for peace not known?
Have we known it somewhere in lives yet to live?
With new blemishes seen, we seek our place.
We seek the peace of Christ,
exhorted to a holy life.
There may be heavens here,
places scarcely known or imagined.
We seek this home here.
We seek this home where we know it may be.
Here we seek a home of peace.

About Tom Bolton

I'm a Husband and Dad, an Enterprise Systems Manager at the City of Milwaukee, and a Disciple and Lay Servant at First United Methodist of West Allis. I love working beside young people. As I study the Bible, sometimes I feel moved to work through my understanding by writing poetry. I also am going through a process to discern my calling, and to learn more about Christian Leadership. Sometimes I just feel like writing about something that grabs my attention too.
