Peace Like A River

Prince of Peace,
your peace is like a river:

flowing
bubbling
tumbling
spilling into life with a rush
pouring with happiness and busyness and richness and fullness
welling up over rocks and hard places
leaping
bounding
dashing
rushing over waterfalls
laughing
delighting in movement and quickness
splashing at your feet with joy and thanks.

Prince of Peace,
your peace is like a river:

cool
quiet
still
scattering rays of sunlight
reflecting weeping willows and delicate dragonflies and lyrics of life
swirling gently into deep pools
waving
rippling
slowing
pausing along the bank
murmuring
calming the turmoil
whispering thoughts of your love.

Prince of Peace,
your peace is like a river.
