Why a peacock?

Because.

Because I love blues and greens.

Because I really love blues and greens.

Because these colors remind me of

peace, the sea, the sky, infinity…

I had a waking prayer dream once on a retreat.

In that dream,

God placed upon my shoulders

a mantle of white,

lined in an wave pattern of

sapphire blue, turquoise, teal, emerald green, and violet.

This mantle was given to me to be my garment of peace.

I don this garment in its many varied renditions on a regular basis.

Staying in the Peace of Christ is how I desire to live.

And so, I am attracted to the peacock.

More on that to come…
