Still Thankful #2
We are thankful for peace. Africa is able to find peace after a long day of playing or an escape to her bed from the tiny hands that love to examine her eyes and ears carefully. I am grateful for peace that is found not just because of this time of year, but the solace, the stillness, the escape from worry that is found within my home always.
There is so much evil going on in this world. It is difficult to not get wrapped up in the chaos and fear. I am so grateful that I can turn off the T.V and remind myself that I have my family and I know why we are here and that there is so much to look forward to after this life. If we stay on the right track and remember who we are there can be peace 365 days of the year.
We would like to suggest turning off any distractions, grab your loved ones furry or not, plug in your Christmas tree, and sit and be still for a moment. What a great time to reflect on what is most important and how to keep the "peace" alive.
