Second week of Advent brings Peace. Something that our weary world needs so desperately today.
What does peace mean to you? For me peace is that feeling that I feel inside when all is right with my little world. It is the feeling of calm when there are no distractions and worries and concerns that are weighing me down.
Often I feel that peace when I am spending time in nature. There is something so calming and soothing about feeling that I am at one with nature. I love sitting on our dock in the morning, sipping a cup of coffee and enjoying the peaceful solitude that the lake provides at that time. SThat feeling of peace and yes – usually quietness- is what keeps me going. That peace inside allows me to share that love of God that I feel and that gives me peace.
During this really challenging year of stress and uncertainty I pray that each of us feels that sense of peace that comes from God. Seek it out, my friends, and know that it is only a prayer away.
