paix :: amour :: simplicite

this year too, we spent the few days "in-between" at doncamillo in montmirail. a good and peaceful, rich time of simple being, praying and playing together.
it is this mural, peace, love, simplicity, which catch my attention. they are written above an arch way going down the stairs to the small chapel. my eyes are fixed by those words every time i step down those stairs. and even more, i caught myself, as i was just wandering down those stairs to simply look up and be still. it is such a strong call, such a powerful sight, i'm fixated by it. reading the words over and over again, looking at them and breathing them. this is how i want to live and breath and be. how i want to be as a wife, a mother, a follower of christ.

words i want to pay attention, want to be intentional about.
