There’s something to be said for peace! Ha Ha! Obviously since I’m blogging about it. A few words come to mind: Purity, priorities, and presence. Yes they all begin with “P” but for a purpose. No this is not a lesson in alliteration but more importantly a message in the power of trust, passion, perseverance and platitudes.
Let me tell you a little about my day. It is rainy. As I arose from a good night’s sleep to see my Sophomore son off to school on his last full day of school for the year, I paused to read my devotion on my phone as I usually do at some point in the morning. I was greeted after that by my beautiful 3 month old grandson’s giggles and coos and immediately transformed into a love that no one can understand but another Nana or mother. Pure JOY!
After everyone had left for work and school and I am left with a sleeping baby boy, I don my clothes and begin my day with the powerful and pleasing 30 minutes of yoga.
As my morning continues, working on my computer to learn new things to help my business, I notice a difference in my attitude and tolerance level of this program that I am somewhat fearful won’t work as I am not the most computer savvy person on the planet. I am however, willing to put forth an effort to learn from those who have been successful.
Now that it is about 3:00 and I am anticipating the arrival of my husband and daughter home from work and my son from school, I am relishing this quiet time again as the baby sleeps in his precious crib to reflect and rejoice at the success of my day.
Could it be attributed to how the day began? God first,fitness second, work third or is it just a blessing for the day how things work together for my good and the good of those around me who love the Lord?
I think it might be a little bit of both…What do you think?
So when looking for PEACE….
PURITY-doing what God wants us to do in every aspect of our lives.
PRIORITIES-God first, health and well being second, all others to follow.
PRESENCE-Today is the first day of the rest of your life. Don’t miss those opportunities to see your 16 year old off to school or spend time to talk to your grandson. We are not promised tomorrow!
POWER OF TRUST-Trust that God has got this! He’s in control. He knows the plans he has for you. Just trust that. Be still and know that He is God.
PERSEVERANCE-Press on. Fight the good fight. Run the race.
PLATITUDES-Have you told your family you love them today? Are you provoking your children or teaching them by example? Have an attitude of gratitude!
Peace be with you!
