Day 12 - peace is not a place
Peace. It does not mean to be in a place
where this is no noise, trouble
or hard work. It means to be in
the midst of those things and still
be calm in your heart.
Our journey through life isn’t always easy. But it is still worth it. To never struggle is to never grow. There is no smooth road to any place worth going.
It’s better to see and accept things as they are instead of what we wished or expected them to be. Just because things don’t always turn out the way we envisioned, doesn’t mean it isn’t exactly what we needed to get where we ultimately wanted to go.
One’s s destination is never a place rather a new way of looking at things.
The road to peace is filled with many obstacles. It’s not easy, but the journey is worth it. Many have learned the hard way, myself included, Peace is in the here and now, it’s always within. Peace is a decision that must be made daily.
What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace.
