"All is calm, All is bright..."
Those words lift the weary soul, don't they?
Just thinking about all being calm, brings peace and quiet to my busy heart.
I strive for simplicity. For calm and peace.
At times, I get discouraged when things are hectic and disheveled.
But, I have to remember, that before "all was calm and bright,"
things were uncertain and frightening.
Before the "calm and bright" was a long journey.
A journey that was uncomfortable, tiring, and seemingly never ending
Before the "calm and bright" there was no room in the inn.
There was a mere stable with no proper bed.
It's good to know that with all that is left on the to-do list,
there will be rest to be found.
There will be rest for your weary and tired soul.
There will be a blessing beyond the Christmas presents.
The "calm and bright" lasts well past the physical celebration.
It is such a relief to finally reach the birth of peace and calm.
Have a Merry Christmas. We will see you in 2015!
