Second Week of Advent: Peace
Saturday, December 10, 2011

And let the peace (soul harmony which comes) from the Christ rule (act as umpire continually) in your hearts – deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in your minds – (in that peaceful state) to which (as members of Christ’s) one body you were also called (to live).  And be thankful, appreciative, giving praise to God always. Colossians 3:15 (The Amplified Version)

My computer desktop screen at home is a beautiful scene of aqua ocean water, a mini island with three palm trees, a sailboat in the distance and a blue sky with white fluffy clouds.  It looks so peaceful.  I could stare at it forever.  It does feel good to be in a state of peace, doesn’t it?  Wish I could just stay there.  Of course, life doesn’t always present itself that way.
