Linked 52 - Peace...

Peace for me has changed through out the years.

I was/am at Peace when...

I was pregnant - each time
my child snuggled in my arms
all of them were getting along
I had the house all to myself
there was quiet
I turned to 99.5 (Classical) in the car with my noisy children and they quieted
I sat in my favorite pew at church and felt God's arms around me
O Holy Night turned out beautifully when Kira and I sang a duet
my children all made it through High School with nothing horrible happening
my children are all doing well
I can divert arguments
all my work is done and I can read a book without feeling guilty
someone really likes my art
I am out in my gardens
I am walking in nature
I see a sky full of stars, a pink and orange sunset, a gorgeous sunrise
life is going smoothly
I feel exceptionally alive.

See what these lovely ladies have to say about Peace

I love your list! For my post I thought about where I feel peace, didn't occur to me to think of when! Thanks for giving me something to think about :)

oh, wow! i'm in love with that third photo... just stunning! it has so much mood to it... and conveys peace appropriately for this post. i love that you can look back and think of the moments of life where you felt and knew peace. i think that's an important way to live... looking back and intentionally finding the good throughout our past. it has caused me to want to do the same.
