At church on Sunday morning our pastor talked about this verse in Philippians.  It spoke to me on the situation here in France.  It is still a very tense time in Europe as there are raids and arrests in France, Belgium and Germany.  It would be very easy to be afraid right now, very alone.  I feel very far from home and very vulnerable.  When it comes time to plan a trip, head across town or even go to the grocery store I have had moments of fear.  This verse can apply to almost any time in life when you are afraid of something or worried about something.  Peace is something that all of us can use more of.  I know I have heard this verse before, but right now it has taken on a special place in my heart.  I took this photo on our walk home from the bus stop last week.  My hope for you all is that you have peace this week in everything that you are doing, no matter where you are in the world.
