Arriving now, day 8...

by Christina

Remember when we first began this journey? We started with "peace...this we choose each day." Today we return to that phrase. It's a choice and certainly not always an easy one as we all know. It's seems that there are so many temptations to be, well, not so peaceful. Whether it's the traffic, challenging co-workers, the needs of family members (let's not even talk about eye-rolling teenage girls), waiting in lines or on the phone for customer service regarding internet (or phones or computers or...), or constant updates regarding the latest in domestic and international politics.  

The last week has been so uplifting. To focus on peace as all those other un-peaceful activities continue. I, for one, have done a better job however I have a lot left to learn. The next quote captures what I'm striving for when it comes to personal peace.

Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.
