PEACE PLEASE..............


May today there be peace within.

May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.

May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.

May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love
that has been given to you.

May you be confident knowing that you are a child of God. Let this presence settle into your bones,
and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.

It is there for each and every one of us.

Teresa of Avila

*****************************************************************************



It is not hard to understand what the world needs now is peace. We go through our days with each of us moving in the paths that we have chosen making the decision both great and small that we will need to repeat tomorrow.

I myself do those things each day, day after day almost in a robotic fashion, but if I stop for just a minute and let myself reflect on the day that has past or the day that is before me out of my mouth come the whispered prayer "just give me peace for this day Father God, I just need peace."


Do you find that is on your lips also. Much more could be requested, but peace is what my heart cries for the most. If only peace, then all else will find rest.

Peace we pray our Father God, peace among the turmoil,

and let us not not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.

Amen! When God offers His peace, I hate when I get in His way.

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid" (Jn 14:27)

"confident knowing that you are a child of God"~Teresa of Avila... this is what it is about. This is the place from which I can have peace and rest. May I be confident in my identity as His child.

It is often the most profound of witness when we have that peace at those moments when others could in no wise understand it.

That happened at the root canal appointments and even when I learned the news at the cleaning...the girl who cleaned my teeth threw her arms around me and thanked me telling me I ought to think higher of myself than I do.
