Serenity is

Found in the peace of His home

A calmness of mind

Ritu 2016

Read as

Serenity is found on the peace of His home;

Found in the peace of His home, a calmness of mind

I always find that a sense of calm waves over me whenever I see our local Gurdwara.  We are lucky, we live literally a stone’s throw away, and I see this magnificent building every day.

It’s a great start to a day, and a wonderful way to finish one too!

The rainbow that day was just an added sense of calm that complemented the whole scene that morning.

    What a magical calming photo and words, Ritu. How nice to start and end the day with that magnificent view. The rainbow certainly adds that final piece of calmness for me.

Shit Stevie Says

Good Shit, bad shit, funny shit, sad shit. Maybe I'll inspire you! Or maybe I won't... Perhaps I'll talk about worldly matters, or maybe my not so subtle obsession with aliens, or (if you're really lucky) I just might one day give insight on how to make the worlds best sandwich. Guess you'll only find out if you read. So sit back, grab a glass of wine (because there is a 100% chance I indulged in one while writing), and enjoy. Welcome to the enigma that is my brain. My name is Stevie Jackson, and I have shit to say.
