Today I Wish You Peace

Peace never comes from what is around us. Peace can only be realized in contrast, like diamonds on black velvet. It has weight and warmth that steadies and anchors us from the inside. Peace is always in spite of and never because of.

Peace is the breath of the Holy Spirit, God in us. Peace exhales from our soul into our surroundings and settles the air.

Peace is the discipline of God into the atmosphere of the world that rails against Him.

Peace cannot be imparted from man to man and yet overflows the peaceful to drape itself over those he touches.

Peace descends, soothes, sings, whispers, speaks, commands, calms, rules, saves.

Today, I wish you peace.

Psalm 29:10-11 The LORD sitteth upon the flood; yea, the LORD sitteth King for ever. The LORD will give strength unto his people; the LORD will bless his people with peace.

Really, honest, I was JUST sitting here listening to the silence, broken only by the birds singing outside and thinking to myself, "what a peaceful morning this has turned out to be!"

Also...since I'm WAY behind in my blog reading, I have just gone back to your 4/13 post and commented on every post since (with the exception of your book review post which I did happen to read on the fly one night at work and had already posted a comment there.) So now, you'll have to go back and realy every single one!

...not necessarily because you want to...

...but because I said so!

Going into crazy count down mode for Charlie's graduation. I could certainly use a little peace!
