Peace

Every few weeks,
I get the opportunity to enter a place
perfectly pure.
The worries and cares of life pile up.
Frustrations and conflict echo through my mind--
concerns about the state of affairs in the world--
amidst the clatter of toy cars and the happy shouts of innocence.
I feel burdened.
I enter those beautiful temple doors weighed down.

And then,
though I seldom come out with more answers,
the burden is lifted.
Peace fills my soul
and my spirit is cleansed.
I approach life's problems with greater clarity
and I am filled with confidence that everything is going to be okay.

And everything is going to be okay.

"Come unto me, all ye that are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."
