Peace On Earth- Day 17- Can't find it!

Okay, let's be real here....

I looked for my peaceful idea, I thought and thought and thought...I just wasn't finding it. I couldn't figure it out...why?

I figured it out, it's THAT da y. You know ladies, THAT day. So I've no inspiration...if you want to send some my way, I'll be happy to share...

....Jenny says:
During THAT day, I like to be still and know that HE is God. Not me. Ever. I don't have to control a.n.y.t.h.i.n.g. And Praise God for that!

So my Peace on Earth for today is: Stillness.

Stillness in my heart; and if I can, my mind. To know I have a connection with the Creator is like my own little secret hiding place.

Take a deeeeeep breath in... let it out slowly and BE STILL.

My peace on earth right now is: contentment.
Something I've struggled with my entire life and interestly enough at a time when my present outward circumstances would(in the past) have thrown me for a loop, right now are growing and teaching me in ways I could never have imagined.

~So I'm content that I haven't once stepped foot in a store to do Christmas shopping.
~I'm content with our little tree with homemade/construction paper ornaments, homemade foil star, and borrowed colored balls, lights, and tree stand.
~I'm content with the food we have, because God gave it to us.
~I'm content in my relationships.
~I'm content with my roles in life right now.
~I'm content with my old clothes because I'm not naked! (I think we can ALL be thankful for that one!)
~I'm content with not giving out Christmas cards, because I'm sure my friends will be OK.
~I'm content where God has placed us right here, right now.

Not just contentment, but also JOY because these things have made me look even more intently at the birth of my Savior and how it changed the world forever and my heart.
It's been Christmas simplified down to just Christ. And I love it.

btw, I'm glad that you're real. Because let's face it, we're human and we all have days or seasons like THAT. Thank you for all the inspiration you've already shared. You're appreciated and loved!
