The cushion of the sea


There is what is called the CUSHION OF THE SEA.  Down beneath the surface that is agitated by storms, and driven about with winds, there is a part of the sea that is never stirred.  When we dredge the bottom and bring up the remains of animal and vegetable life, we find that they give evidence of not having been disturbed in the least, for hundreds and thousands of years.

The peace of God is that eternal calm which, like the CUSHION OF THE SEA, lies far too deep down to be reached by any external trouble and disturbance, and he who enters into the presence of God, becomes partaker of that undisturbed calm.

—-Doctor A. T. Pearson

When winds are raging o’er the upper ocean

And billows wild contend with angry roar

It is said, far down beneath the wild commotion

That peaceful stillness reigns evermore.

Far, far beneath, the noise of tempest dies

And silver waves chime ever peacefully

And no rude storm, how fierce so ever it flies

Disturbs the Sabbath of that deeper sea.

So to the heart that knows Thy love, O Purest

There is a temple sacred evermore

And all the babble of life’s angry voices

Dies in hushed silence at its peaceful door.

Far, far away, the roar of passion dies

And loving thoughts rise calm and peacefully

And no rude storm, how fierce so ever flies

Disturbs the soul that dwells, O Lord in Thee.

—Harriet Beecher Stowe

“The Pilgrim they laid in a large upper chamber, facing the sun-rising.  The name of the chamber was Peace.


Bilingual Canton Valais

The CANTON of VALAIS (French pronunciation –vale ; German pronunciation –wallis ) is one of the 26 Cantons of Switzerland.  It sits in the South-Western part of the country, around the valley of the Rhone from its headwaters to Lake Geneva, separating the PENNINE ALPS from the BERNESE ALPS. The Canton is simultaneously one of the driest regions of Switzerland in its central Rhone valley and among the wettest, having large amounts of snow and rain up on the highest peaks found in Switzerland.  The CANTON of VALAIS is widely known for the MATTERHORN and resort towns such as SAAS FEE, VERBIER and ZERMATT.  It is composed of 13 districts (hence the 13 stars on the flag) and its capital is Sion.  The Romans called the upper Rhone valley VALIS POENINA, which was won by the Romans, after a great fight at Octodurus in 57BC, and was so thoroughly ROMANIZED, that both the CELTIC original inhabitants and the GERMANIC BURGANDIAN invaders of the 5th century became Romance-speaking peoples. Wine and fruit cognacs, e.g. WILLIAMINE production and tourism are some of the main industries of the CANTON.  Agriculture is important, particularly CATTLE BREEDING in the MOUNTAINS and DAIRY FARMING in the PLAINS.  The wine industry of the CANTON is the largest in Switzerland.  There are also a large number of orchards in the area, and saffron is also gathered there.  The GRISONS FRITILLARY, is a butterfly NYMPHALIDAE family.  It is found in the Alps on heights of 1,500 – 2,600 metres, especially in the SWISS CANTONS VALAIS, ENGADIN and GRAUBUNDEN.  It is also found in the ORTLER region in South Tyrol, and areas in the APENNENE Mountain, such as ABRUZZO.
Adam H. Graham writes, “People don’t visit the rugged landscape of VALAIS just for its ski-slopes, vertical vineyards and thermal baths —-the main attraction is much, much smaller”.  Thanks partly to its arid, sunny climate, VALAIS is one of Europe’s largest butterfly habitats.  The rugged ancient landscape of CANTON VALAIS is home to a variety of exquisite, endangered butterflies which draws lepidopterists from around the world.  It is also known as the VALLEY of BUTTERFLIES.  It is also an area, where a single mountain might be home to several different habitats —-a rare find in the BUTTERFLY WORLD.  The wildflower covered mountainsides of CANTON VALAIS are the perfect playground  for butterflies.  Two regions, particularly, include the SIMPLON PASS, home to the elusive RATZER’S RINGLET, and the narrow VISPERTAL VALLEY, the only place in Switzerland where you can find the Orange and Brown PROVENCAL FRITILLARY.  Some of the most varied butterfly in the VALAIS, however, run along the spine of Switzerland ROSTIGRABEN, the virtual that separates the country’s German and French speaking regions.  ROSTI is a fried potato dish loved by SWISS GERMANS and scoffed at by SWISS FRENCH.  This ancient CULTURAL & LINGUISTIC EQUATOR cuts through the NATURPARK PFYN-FINGES, a thickly-wooded, foreboding steppe habitat that doubles as a natural border attracting several types of butterflies.  The LINGUISTIC DIVIDE adds a challenge : –both German and French species names are used here, which confuse even professionals, therefore in the case of natural history field studies, the Latin names are used. The HIMMELBLAUER BLAULING, or what the French call AZURE de la BUGRANE, is a tiny delicate creature with ice-blue wings and a fanning pattern of orange ringlets along its hind wings..  Then there’s the gossamer APOLLO butterfly with signature RED-EYE wing marks.  There are 195 species of butterflies in Switzerland and tens of 1000’s of moth species, many of them DIURNAL.   In German, the word for butterfly is SCHMETTERLINGE and in French —PAPILLON…Thus CANTON VALAIS is Switzerland’s VALLEY OF BUTTERFLIES.

Challenge thy mountain in the Lord


God has said : All my resources are at your command.  Whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do.  What mortal mind can realise the full significance of the position to which God lovingly raises His children ?

Say to this mountain “Go

Be cast into the sea”

And doubt not in thy heart

That it shall be to thee.

It shall be done, doubt not His Word



Claim thy redemption right

Purchased by precious blood

The Trinity unite

To make it true and good

It shall be done, obey the Word



Self, sickness, sorrow, sin

The Lord did meet that day

On His  beloved One

And thou art ‘loosed away’

It has been done, rest on His Word



Compass the frowning wall

With silent prayer, then raise

Before its ramparts fall

The victor’s shout of praise

It shall be done, faith rests assured



The two-leaved gates of brass

The bars of iron yield

To let the faithful pass

Conquerors in every field / It shall be done, the foe ignored



Take then the faith of God

Free from the taint of doubt

The miracle-working rod

That casts all reasoning out

It shall be done, stand on the Word

ANGER is an emotional response to one’s psychological interpretation of having been threatened.  Often it indicates when one’s boundaries are violated.  Some have a tendency to react to anger through retaliation.  Anger may be utilised effectively.  Shiela Videbeck, describes anger as a normal emotion, that involves a strong uncomfortable and emotional response to a perceived provocation.

Raymond Novaco of UC Irvine, who since 1975 has published a plethora of literature on the subject, stratified anger into 3 modalities :–COGNITIVE ((appraisals), SOMATIC-AFFECTIVE (tension and agitations) and BEHAVIORAL (withdrawal and antagonism).  William DeFoore, an anger-management writer, described anger as a PRESSURE COOKER : We can only apply pressure against our anger for a certain amount of time, UNTIL IT EXPLODES.


ANGER may have physical correlates, such as increased heart-rate, blood-pressure and levels of adrenaline.  The English term, originally comes from the term anger of OLD NORSE language.  The external expression of anger can be found in facial expressions, body language, physiological responses and, at times, in public acts of aggression.  Un controlled anger can, however, negatively affect personal or social well-being.  It is said : ANGER is ACTIVE SADNESS; SADNESS is PASSIVE ANGER.—–Anger (Arabic —GHADAB ) in Islam, is considered to be instigated by Shaitan.  Islamic teachings also state that anger hinders the faith (iman) of a person.  In Buddhism, anger is defined as : being unable to bear the object, or the intention to cause harm to the object.  It is a DESTRUCTIVE EMOTION.  In Hinduism, anger is equated with sorrow as a form of unrequited desire.  In Catholicism, anger is counted as one of the seven deadly sins.  In Judaism, anger is a negative trait.


(1) Beware of him that is slow to ANGER; for when it is long coming, it is the stronger, and the longer kept.  Abused patience turns to fury. —–Francis Quarles.

(2) ANGER is a killing thing: it kills the man who is angry, for each rage leaves him less than he had been before —it takes something from him.—–Louis L’Amour.

(3) Speak when you are angry, and you will make the best speech —you will ever regret. —–Ambrose Bierce.

(4) Holding on to ANGER, is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; YOU ARE THE ONE WHO GETS BURNED. —–Buddha.

(5) Anybody can become Angry, that is easy; but to be angry with the right person, and to the right degree, and at the right time and for the right purpose, and in the right way —that is not within everybody’s power and is not easy. —Aristotle.

(6) In times of great stress and adversity, its always best to keep busy, to plow your ANGER and your energy into something positive. —–Lee Iacocca.

(7) For every minute you remain ANGRY, you give up 60 secs of peace of mind. –Ralph Waldo Emerson.

(8) Bitterness is like cancer.  It feeds upon the host.  But ANGER is like fire, it burns it all clean. —–Maya Angelou.
