Chapter 3, Page 28, Book 13
Peace means far more than the opposite of war!
WORD FOR TODAY
The quality or state of being tranquil; serenity.
an untroubled state; free from disturbances
a state of peace and quiet
Some of my most tranquil moments have been when I've been rocking a sleeping baby. For me it is a time of complete peace.
I have also found that being outdoors in nature makes me feel very serene. There is nothing like being in the woods on a hot summer day and relaxing in the shade.
The beach is another of my peaceful places. Laying on the sand and listening to the waves crash on the shore is very calming. When ever I'm having a tough day, my mind can take me to the beach in just a matter of seconds. I often say I'm having a beach day, when in truth, the beach is only in my mind.
When life has repeatedly dragged you down, that’s a great time to remind yourself of how beautiful and joyful life can be.
