then there was peace......Yesterday I was sitting in the recliner
reading a book and listening to Christmas music (yes, Christmas music). Oh
by the way, I was sitting in front of one of my Christmas trees as well.
Yes I am one of those people. I digress......As the familiar song was
playing Jon was in the kitchen and would occasionally quietly hum along
with the song. We both sing a little off key and that would mean that we
tend to hum off key as well. I stopped reading and just smiled. It was
such a sweet thing, a spontaneous thing; the music and my husband
humming here and there. I took in a deep breath of the sweetness. I was
aware of the Holy Spirit's presence as the Holy Spirit lives within us
both. And then there was peace.
Life is full of moments of
peace. And I love it when it just sneaks up on me like that moment
yesterday. I am convinced that those moments of awareness are moments
where eternity meets us within our finite world reminding us of the
"home" to come. I know that those moments come to sustain us and remind
us of the "Peace Giver." It reminds us that we are not alone and that
truly we are just passing through this world.
"My peace I give
unto you; not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be
troubled, neither let it be afraid." Jesus Christ
