Chapter 12, Page 23, Book 12
Peace on earth will come to stay, When we live Christmas every day.
Helen Steiner Rice
The fourth Sunday of Advent, December 23rd: PEACE
Activities and gatherings may pack my schedule during the holiday season. Sometimes it can seem overwhelming. Yet in the midst of any busyness, there are ways I can find peaceful moments.
Just closing my eyes and taking some deep breaths helps. Even in the hectic times I can remember that God is near and allow small moments of peace to return.
God is in control and will fill your Christmas with peace God can and will fill your Christmas with hope God cares and will fill your Christmas with love
God doesn't want us to get irritated in our preparations for Christmas. That would sort of defeat the purpose of the coming of the Prince of Peace, wouldn't it? Peaceful and meaningful preparation is key. No panic necessary ... keep focused on the Reason for the Season.
