Don't you love the way snow falls and rests on the branches of the trees. It stays. It rests. It abides in peace until it is time to be warmed and melted away.
May the peace of my Savior abide with you and me. Let it rest. Let it stay in our hearts as our shield against worry, our sunshine, melting any hardness of heart that may try and creep in. Hold onto, bask in the relief and joy of His peace. You may need it for those joyfilled, not so peacful family celebrations. Wink. Wink.
My brother John said it well. "Peace I (Jesus) leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give as the world gives. DO NOT ALLOW your hearts to be troubled and do not be afraid. " -John 14:27
