“Take Peace” on this Tasha Tudor Tuesday

I was privileged  yesterday to have this lovely peaceful view from where I live. I so needed this at this time – Flights of Serenity with rays of Hope, Joy and Peace. It brought to mind Tasha Tudor’s favorite quotation, Which I have found comfort in many times during the events of the last few days;

Tasha's Fantail Doves

Tasha’s Fantail Doves- Universal symbol of peaces. As pictured in Forever Christmas.

Take Peace!

I salute you! There is nothing I can give you which you have not; but there is much that, while I cannot give, you can take.

No heaven can come to us unless our hearts rest in today. Take Heaven.

No peace lies in the future which is not hidden in the present instant. Take Peace.

The gloom of the world is but a shadow; behind it’ yet within our reach is joy. Take Joy!

And so, at this Christmas time, I greet you, with the prayer that for you, now and forever, the day breaks and the shadows flee away.

I have once again have been able to find comfort and peace in Tasha’s Words, Art and life style. I hope it bring serenity to you during these turbulent time.

May we all feel Peace and comfort while enjoying this Christmas season with our loved ones, while hugging them just a little tighter!

~ Take Joy , Take Peace, Melissa

We had a beautiful walk on the beach this evening. It is so peaceful watching the birds. They stand there making their content noises then suddenly they take flight, return to the same place and do it all over again. It is so serene to listen and watch. I hope you enjoy your walk with us!!
