Peace, Be Still.


For me, enjoying every morsel of Christmas is in full swing. It saddens me that many folks state with weariness, things like 'surviving the holidays' and 'I'll be glad when its over". Its as if they're drug into the commercial fray and a frenzied busyness ... reluctant, but willing victims.

Christmas is actually a very quiet and above all, a very peaceful holiday. The baby Jesus was literally a gift of peace. Christmas was never intended to be stressful. The many joys of the season can be savored in a way that preserves all of the good things, the music, the scents, the sights ... and the beautiful gift of peace. The magic and the wonder of this holiday is like looking at the miracle of a single snowflake. It was never really lost - you just can't see it from a galloping horse. Slow down and let the beauty of 'Silent Night' bless and keep you where you need to be to take it all in without the noise. A holly-jolly smile from the inside out is sure to follow.

 "And He will be their peace."  ~ Micah 5:5
