It's a simple question to ask, but maybe a harder one to answer. 


My answer has been something like walking in the waves on the beach. Or sitting on the back patio in the sunshine and listening to the wind ruffling trees and the birds singing.


But recently, I've discovered a new answer. An acrostic for P-E-A-C-E. It's something I've been wanting to share with you, but then technology interrupted my, well, my peace.

My heart is full. I’ve just returned home after attending the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference. This was my eleventh time to attend and second time to teach. It’s my home away from home, a lifeline each year. The refreshment of being with other writers and gaining new strength on the mountain is an event I cherish.


So today, in lieu of a Bible study devotion, I’d like to share with you a poem. Next month, I will continue our series of Sustaining Life’s Spiritual Victories. Guest bloggers will join me in the weeks to come as we talk about how to sustain a victory that we have won with God’s help. Visit “A Smart Heart” to see our last post in the series and a list of our devotions so far. Today’s poems is one of my favorites, and one I need to remember. I pray it blesses you.

I met my first wolf as a preteen visiting the city zoo in Paris, France. He was black, and I think he liked me. As I walked back and forth in front of his fenced habitat taking pictures of the wolves, he followed me. Head down. I got a kick out of this and started walking faster back and forth in front of him, hoping he would keep following me. He did. My mom called out for me to stop. I think she was wiser than I. Not too long after that, I encountered a different wolf. As a teenager, I began having tormenting, negative thoughts. After a while, my mom realized they were coming from a spiritual enemy.
