Welcome to Ripples of Peace, I'm so glad that you decided to stop by. I have created this blog as a way to share my writings with family and friends. I chose the name Ripples of Peace because of the love that I have for being out on the water. Growing up in Northern Minnesota gave me plenty of time to spend enjoying God's beautiful creation. One of my favorite things was to be out in the water either in a boat or a canoe just soaking in the warm rays of the sun. I loved sitting there feeling the wind whisper across my skin, I could feel the presence and peace of God.
I loved watching the water and the ripples that were created. How did they start and how far did they go? Life is a lot like the ripples in the water. All of us face challenges on a daily basis and it has a ripple effect on our lives and those around us.
How do you deal with the trials of life? I have learned that we can only meet the difficulties of life by having our Savior at our side. There have been so many times where I would try and fix things on my own and I would end up with a bigger mess. I knew that only my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, would be able to help me through those troubled times.
God comforts me and gives me His peace on a daily basis. It is my hope that when you come and visit that I can share with you the Peace and encouragement that God has given me.
"The Sovereign Lord has given me an instructed tongue, to know the Word that sustains the weary. He awakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught. The Sovereign Lord has opened my ears. " Isaiah 50: 4-5
