I know Peace
Peace of heart which makes you sigh.
Peace of mind that is contentment.
The Peace that transcends understanding.
My life is not always Peaceful.
Too often it is contentious.
And…I have not always been in the right.
Peace can be elusive.
I see it…there…the brass ring….there…just out of my grasp….there….I reach for it frantically….there…while I whirl on this carousal…around and around….there…my fingers clutch and I am wrenched off.
In the dark, I search for Peace as if blind…my fingertips sweeping the air at the radius of my arms…extending…sweeping…until (more often than not) I crack my shin and bruise my knee as I trip over the Peace which was in front of me all the time.
Make it peaceful where you are.
Make peace with those around you.
(I’m not saying agree or acquiesce.)
I am wishing for you common ground to establish peace.
In these days when we say Peace…too often one thinks of War…with the constant coverage and never ending armchair commanders in chief…so….yes…
Give Peace a Chance
Let there be Peace on Earth…Let it begin with me.
For my children (who within a few months will all be adults) my heartfelt prayer is that you have Peace.
Peace of Heart
Peace of Mind
Peace of Soul
To breath without anxious thoughts
To recognize you don’t always need what you don’t have
To appreciate the beauty of the small thing
To be grateful for love
To live in a home that is your haven
To have sanctuary for your soul
To be content
