ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©
We search in vain for a place that’s empty of confusion,
All the trappings of the world bring no relief,
The noise of life overtakes us.
We run to the mountains for serenity,
We hide in the meadow near a quiet stream,
We escape from the pack to be alone,
But the sound of a jackhammer penetrates the silence,
The voices of anger rage around us,
The tempest of fear stirs within us,
True peace can only be obtained through the Son of God,
The Prince of Peace.
“In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.”
