Chapter 8, Page 30, Book 15

Peace is not something you wish for. It's something you make, something you do, something you are, and something you give away.     

Robert Fulghum

August 30th- love brings peace, that’s what it is meant to do

Outer circumstances do not bring me peace and satisfaction. Love does.  Love brings serenity to the soul, a feeling of joyful contentment.  The peace that your heart and soul rests into when you just think about it. 

Peace is a way of life, not a place you strive to reach. Peace is found through love, love of self, love of others.  Peace and selfishness do not coexist very well at all.   Love unites us, despite all of our differences.

If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other. 

Mother Teresa

What brings order in the world is to love and let love do what it will.  One word, one action, or one thought can reduce another person's suffering and bring him or her joy.  One word can give comfort and confidence, destroy doubt, help someone avoid a mistake, reconcile a conflict, or open the door to liberation.  One action can save a person's life or help him or her take advantage of a rare opportunity. 

A very wise person once said that peace begins with a smile. Smile five times a day at someone you don't really want to smile at; do it for peace

Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace.

Perfect share for the Lord's day, Ma!
OK, I'll take your challenge ...and try to smile 5 times tomorrow in another's direction. Even if she doesn't notice, I've a hunch my innards will. :)
