Peace that only God can Give

"...we must labor for the love of God. Just as self-love is violent, turbulent, and impetuous, so the care that proceeds from it is full of trouble, uneasiness and disquiet.  As the love of God is sweet, peaceable and calm, so that care which proceeds from this love, even though it be for worldly goods, is yet amiable, sweet and agreeable."
St. Francis de Sales - Introduction to the Devout Life

from journal entry September 5, 2012.
