Peace

Today is the second Sunday in Advent and we lit the candle of HOPE and PEACE. Hope is one of my favorite ideals as it is always open to possibility. Hope springs eternal, but peace is illusive. Just when we think we have found it, our selfish desires rise up and it skitters away like a frightened deer. But with Jesus it is different. Jesus is the Prince of Peace. Not only because he was internally at peace, but because through his life and his death he brings peace between man and God. Someday, His kingdom will fully reign and we are told that the lion will lay down with the lamb. I look forward to that day and try in my own way to usher some of His peace into the world today. Shalom! Peace within, peace with each other and peace with God.

  3. Nice.
    A sweet reminder of how Spirit shows up to literally show us the Presence.
    I love love love the sounds of Meadow Larks.

    Don't you wonder sometimes, that since Peace is so, peaceful, that as a state-of-being it is rather overlooked, under-rated?
