A Quiet Peace...

As i was driving home from the staff Christmas party (it was fun.. good food.. good companions and good conversation - thank you for asking) .... i had the radio on listening to Christmas music and just kinda puttering along. i was enjoying the after glow of the dinner.. and the Christmas lights.. and counting my blessings..

Then a song came on .... Let There be Peace on Earth....... and it took me back to choir days and the quiet church on a Sunday Evening just before Christmas.. back to the belief that there could be Peace on Earth if people just tried hard enough. And i remembered.. really remembered... the conviction i had as a young woman.. the same one i still carry today in my heart. Some call me naive.. others just shake their heads at me.. BUT i do believe.. that if we could only just remember .... peace starts with us..... each and everyone of us.... a smile passed on.. a hug given.. an ear and a shoulder offered.. that peace will grow and spread outwards .. like a ripple in a pond...........

Let peace begin with me,
let this be the moment now.
With every step I take,
let this be my solemn vow,

To take each moment and live each moment
in peace, eternally.
Let there be Peace on Earth,
and let it begin with me.



My one wish this holiday season is that each one who comes here may find some peace in their hearts.. that each one will pass on that peace in whatever form ...... and that each one will leave a candle burning in their window until the light.... and the peace spreads round the world...........
