Enjoying the peace and beauty of living in Nevada County

You can’t read the newspaper, listen to the news, or even look outside the window these days without being reminded of the fire danger and health concerns with all the smoke. My heart goes out to each one affected, and to all those suffering.

As a Christian Scientist, and as one who prays daily for the protection of my home, family, community and even the world, I turn to an all-loving God who truly is all-powerful and ever-present. These days I’ve been praying a lot with the Psalms in the Bible. One of my favorite verses is: “Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God” (Psalm 43). May we all feel safe in God’s loving arms as we continue to enjoy the peace and beauty of living in Nevada County.
