In the last few weeks we have blogged and joyed in Hope and Love. Now, we are going to, hopefully, make our Joy theme circle complete with Peace!
I have ever so enjoyed making a part of my devotional time in the last few weeks a creative art in drawing my three foot circle with deeds soaked in hope, love and now peace to ingnite the count down to lighting the JOY TREE! Earlier we have called our Joy Tree the Jesse Tree found in Isaiah 11. AKA The Tree of Jesus.
As I contemplate thoughts of Peace and pray to know and give peace I find myself in sensitivity training. I find among friends I am often time rebuffed with my new points of interest in my three foot circle. It’s a delight really to see and hear the rebuff. I seem to know I’m on the right round about.
To give peace I must have empathy in my quill and to have empathy I need to salvage sensivitity from a source? Thinking thoughts; need met with emotions! Not, pity, arrogance or pride. But, a sincere heart infusion of another’s plight. We so often hear of one receiving a heart stint to give better health to the heart. Great! But, we at times hear about one receiving a new heart. Awesome! Now, a part of heart health is acquiring peace and it may be found when the mind is enjoying tranquility.
My Christmas Peace is taking me on a sensitivity journey. Why, should I give a man shoes when he needs food? Or, food when he needs shoes? A song of dance when she needs a song of rest? Words when one needs mute? Or, mute when one needs words? A big one, give what I want to give away for a feel good of having gotten rid of my clutter when they don’t need my excess but a new coat? An aging loved one cake when they need Boost? A pink dress, my taste, and frill and they love brown with no frill? I think I’m about to get my own point!
Yes, let there be peace on earth and let it begin in my three foot circle of hope, love, peace so others as well as myself will know JOY! Have you experienced any peace heart changes in your thinking, giving, caring, sharing or being?
