If it is peace you want, seek to change yourself, not other people.
It is easier to protect your feet with slippers than to carpet the whole of the earth.
I've got to say that they are all very independent and are good at taking care of their own lives. They don't often bring their problems to me. They know though that I'm always ready and willing to pray and they do ask for prayers when needed.
Life for me is pretty simple and maybe that is another good way to have peace and be peaceful. Being content with who you are and what you have and do is fantastic. I learned a long time ago that you can not change others. They are what they are and nothing I can do will change that.
Just about every day that I'm home and the sun is shining you'll find me with a good book in my rocking chair here on the back patio.
It's just one of my peaceful places.
Hope you all have a fantastic Friday!
