Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you; not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid
Christ spoke the simple truth; His peace is not the peace of the world. It is a deeper peace than the world can offer. Let me look past the storms that rage all around me, not in the form of lightning, thunder or wind, but of hatred, fear and violence. Let me understand instead, all the other perils of this life to the reaches of eternity that can be open to me. Let me trust, today, in that peace which Christ brings to all of His disciples, even in the midst of this storm . . . to me. Let me be worthy to have that peace enfold me. Mother Teresa said, "peace begins with a smile!" So today, let me smile!
