Christmas time is a time of peace. Jesus is referred to as the Prince of Peace because he demonstrated that in the midst of conflict we can have peace.
In more current times we find the same demonstration of that kind of peace in Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr. They too showed us that peace is always possible even in conflict.
But how do we find that peace when things seem to be chaotic, stressful, challenging, heartbreaking, and when life seems anything but peaceful? We go within, we find that secret place of the Most High that we all have within us. We pause when agitated and ask for help from our Higher Power.
When we do that, we find an inner strength and peace that is beyond anything that the world can bring us. We find the calm in the midst of the storm and with it the ability to keep on keeping on.
Peace be with you.
