Good morning, Father!
Thank you for the peaceful, lovely beginning to this day, waking up at 5:30am to spend a couple hours with my Mate before he leaves to do a day’s work with a neighbor — and now, sitting by the open window listening to a dove cooing in a nearby tree, and smelling the fresh humid 60-degree air. Thank you for answering my prayer of last night, allowing me to help my Mate be ready for the day and have a good send-off. Thank you for giving me my absolute favorite type of weather for my morning alone in the camper! Thank you for the cats that come and go outside, greeting me with upturned faces from below my open window beside my desk table, knowing each one of them personally and yet not being responsible for any of them — just friends and neighbors like the humans nearby, lol. This may not be paradise, and there is a LOT of evil in the world around us, but I thank you for this little peaceful haven in which to enjoy this cool humid weather before the big Texas heat begins! Please help me work and rest and play and just enjoy feeling blessed, Lord. Amen. 🙂

James 3:13-18 ERV

Are there any among you who are really wise and understanding? Then you should show your wisdom by living right. You should do what is good with humility. A wise person does not boast. 
If you are selfish and have bitter jealousy in your hearts, you have no reason to boast. Your boasting is a lie that hides the truth. 
That kind of “wisdom” does not come from God. That “wisdom” comes from the world. It is not spiritual. It is from the devil. 
Where there is jealousy and selfishness, there will be confusion and every kind of evil. 
But the wisdom that comes from God is like this: First, it is pure. It is also peaceful, gentle, and easy to please. This wisdom is always ready to help people who have trouble and to do good for others. This wisdom is always fair and honest. 
People who work for peace in a peaceful way get the blessings that come from right living. 

1 Thessalonians 4:11-12 ERV

Do all you can to live a peaceful life. Mind your own business, and earn your own living, as we told you before. 
If you do these things, then those who are not believers will respect the way you live. And you will not have to depend on others for what you need.

Isaiah 32:18-20 ERV

My people will be safe in their homes and in their calm, peaceful fields. 
But before this happens, the forest must fall and the city must be torn down. 
Some of you live away from the cities. You plant seeds by every stream and let your cattle and donkeys roam free. You will be very blessed.
