The words PEACE ON EARTH. Do I really believe that? We sing it. But to see it. When we loose family members to relentless diseases, or sudden circumstances. Peace in our city among the police calls, drug problems, mental health issues, store closures and lack of jobs. Or even in our world, how the majority world lives under the poverty line, or how militant groups kill as honor. It effects us all. Everyone can relate. Maybe I can’t always see peace on earth. But I know it’s there. Why create an earth that would only self destruct or be covered with evil. To be honest, I really don’t know. But I do know, it was meant to be saved. I was meant to be saved. I, as much as anybody contributes to the un-peacefulness. Each person, inside, deep down can be changed to create peace or create unrest. I think I’m ready to choose peace. With myself, with who I am, among my coworkers, the people I serve, my family, my circle of friends, and who I meet along the journey. For me, it’s only one life. Finding peace in the struggle of life, look out for it, it’s there. It’s already been brought. It’s within you.
