Peace. A word that in itself sounds warm and quiet.
A little shush with the “c” on the end.
I have been thinking about Peace lately. Peace in the Middle East, in Russia, Syria, wherever there’s tension. Peace on Earth, Goodwill Towards Men. Peace doesn’t just mean being kind and thoughtful and peaceful during the holidays, it’s a word and feeling that should resonate the entire year through.
Peace should be a top priority.
Take a few minutes, light a candle for Peace. Send out the waves of love and “do unto others as you would have them do onto you”. If any message could ever break through and catch the ear of a Supreme Being- Peace is it.
I’m not an expert on Peace. I don’t know how and if our world will even get close to understanding the word “Peace”. Terrorism lurks in lightness as well as darkness and from great distances. It makes us mindful and careful.
We need to find Peace in our daily lives. Take a few moments to reflect in a quiet spot away from the hustle and bustle.
Contemplation over a hot cup of peppermint tea.
Quiet thoughts while watching the lights twinkle on a perfectly decorated tree.
Reaching out to help someone.
A warm smile and a nod of the head to a passing stranger amid all the holiday hubbub.
An arm in arm walk with a friend or loved one in the crisp evening air.
There doesn’t have to be words, just positive thoughts.
Maybe we all should send out those thoughts of Peace during this Holiday Season and together let’s hope there’s someone “out there” listening somewhere…
