A Bit Of Peace Lodged In My Heart

As a child I often times walked into my parents bedroom in the evening. I am sure “walked into” could also be interpreted as “loudly burst into”.   I can’t remember the times I walked in, to find my father on his knees, head bowed over folded hands.  Praying.  I would slowly back out, usually much quieter than when I burst in.  And there would be a bit of peace lodged in my heart.

Tonight I felt a need to create something of comfort.

And an image of a starry night was playing in my thoughts.

The thought of relationship was dancing through my heart.

Feelings of wistfulness swirled around.

After I drew this

I felt something similar to those moments when I found dad on knees praying.

And I feel an echo of that bit of peace lodged in my heart.

And it was a comfort.

At Night

  1. That’s a terrific picture and very peaceful image. You’re lucky that when you walked in on your parents, they were only praying! Sorry, sometimes I just can’t help myself!


  2. i have to admit that i had the same initial thought as marisa, but maybe that’s why we’re your loyal followers ). what a lovely peaceful scene you have created here.


  3. That is a sweet, sweet memory Colleen and reminds me greatly of my own dad. Thank you for sharing your story and your gorgeous drawing. In prayer, hearts find peace. 🙂


  4. A very nice memory. its amazing the diverse number of childhood memories you get when you talk to your friends. One of mine is making my dad a cheese and onion sandwich after he mowed the grass and bringing him a cold beer. Then we’d sit and survey his kingdom🤗


  5. “The thought of relationship was dancing through my heart.”
    This made me meditate on Matthew 5:23,24.
    Thanks. Indeed, a bit of peace lodged in one’s heart.
