Peace Like a River….

Peace Like A River
The Mississippi River ~Venice, Louisiana

Peace is not just the absence of war…Peace is an attitude in our mind. It’s a constant inner tranquility and serenity within our very souls. Peace of mind is a healthy choice for real joy. We can affirm divine calmness and peace by sending out only thoughts of love and goodwill toward each other.

May we find peace within our hearts and let it out…let it out by smiling…a sign of peacefulness that’s so contagious and infectious. May we plant love and compassion and cultivate peace. Then we can harvest this peace and give it away….share it with others. Where there is peace we will find love….and there we will find God, then nothing else really matters. My wish for 2010 is that we all find peace, through God, within ourselves, with others all around the world; brothers and sisters alike.

When peace like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.
~from the song “It Is Well With My Soul”

Peace be with you all and a Happy New Year full of good wishes.

…seek peace, and pursue it.~Psalms 34:14
