Today's Daily Word


Inner Peace
I am calm and serene.
Nothing can disturb me without my permission.  For that reason, I begin my day with a choice for peace. Regardless of external events, the length or urgency of my to-do list, or the activity of my busy mind, I find peace within.

As I become quiet and aware of my thoughts and emotions, I am not sidetracked by any rash reaction to turmoil.  I focus my attention on my breathing, close my eyes and envision the tranquility of Spirit. I am calm as I make a few simple choices for peace: I smile; I turn the television off; I shut down the computer.

A few moments in prayer or meditation attune me to the serenity within.  In Spirit, I am calm, serene and undisturbed.
Those of steadfast mind you keep in peace.--Isaiah 26:3

"Blessed are the peacemakers..."
Thanks for reminding us that a part of the peace that we long for - for ourselves, our family, and our community - comes from a step back, a deep breath, and a whisper of a prayer.
