I believe the most complete physical expression of peace is when the world is covered in a blanket of snow. There is a hush that comes over everything when it snows. A quiet, a calm. Peace.
We woke up yesterday to a white Christmas. My newest nephew's first Christmas and a white one at that. How magical! It started snowing again during the day & today we woke up to lots more snow this morning.
Even with a crying baby in the background, when I looked out the window all I felt was peace.
Snow might be God's way of quieting the earth and everyone on it for just a brief moment in time. But why can't we take time to move through life with a little more calm when there's no snow?
Mother Theresa said, "If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each another." I want peace in my life, so I am going to try not to forget.
(short blog this week - not as easy to type & think away with an 8 week old in my lap... he's happy helping me work...but don't know how long it will last ... although maybe all this thinking of being calm & peaceful is getting into his adorable little head... he did calm down yesterday when I walked him to the window & he saw the snow.... It was like he instinctively knew - things are quiet with snow.)
