Whether sixty or sixteen, there is in every human being's heart the lure of wonder, the unfailing child like appetite of what's next, and the joy of the game of living. In the center of your heart and my heart there is a wireless station; so long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer, courage and power from men and from the infinite, so long are you are young
I received a lot of really wonderful Christmas gifts this year. Some I needed, some I dreamed of and some where total surprises. But one of the nicest gifts came after Christmas and that was the gift of a peace filled moment.
Taking a moment to pause, breathe deeply, and relax is a wonderful and free gift that can bring calm and strengthen us. It is a wonderful feeling to know that all the preparations are done and were enjoyed and to just sit back and relax. At this point I’m not even thinking about what the next big thing on the calendar or my to do list is. I’m taking time to savor the moment.
It's in the quiet moments where you reconnect to the peace in your heart. I’m in no hurry to line up the next project. I’m going to take a little time just to enjoy the moments of peace and quiet here at my house. As the days get longer there will be more to do and I want to be the best I can be in order to do them.
Winter invites to snuggle in and find joy in peace. Or is it that we find peace in JOY. This time of silence, it recharges me mentally, physically, and spiritually. I have been relaxing completely and letting go of any seeming need to try to fix myself or others.
It is my hope at the beginning of this new year and the beginning of each and every day that Peace, Joy, Hope and Happiness may be yours .
May the God of hope fill you with all joy & peace in believing
