“I am leaving you with a gift – peace of mind, and so don’t be troubled or afraid.”
Experiencing recently the peace one feels when surrounded by nature, I was reminded of the various meanings of peace. Most of us, from time to time, experience different aspects of it: the peace one feels after completing a job well done; the peace of having a problem resolved without your having to do a thing as God took care of it in His own way and His own time; the peace of having done all you can do and leaving the rest to someone else or to God (or to both); the peace of wonderful quiet after leaving a noisy room; the peace at the end of a day well spent; and, most important of all, the peace of knowing it is well with your soul.
GIVER OF ALL GIFTS, WE THANK YOU FOR THE GIFT OF PEACE. FOR THIS AND ALL OF YOUR OTHER GIFTS GIVEN FREELY TO US, WE PRAISE YOU.AMEN.
