A few posts ago I shared some of the little signs I made for our home. You were warned then that there would be more signs, and I wasn't kidding!
This is the latest offering:
To make this one I
And mounted them on a painted piece of MDF cut to size. Hub-a-Lubs kindly framed the finished product. I wasn't sure where I wanted to put it so I tried it on the back patio at first:
but then I decided that it probably wouldn't weather too well out there exposed to the elements, so back indoors it came and it ended up in the family room where we watch TV together in the evenings:
It is probably the most appropriate place to display a reminder for peace - those TV remote control tug-of-wars can be quite lively between the cub-a-lubs!! LOL:)
Peace has actually been on my mind a lot lately. I tend to prefer peace and quiet to noise and chatter. I often find that I need to take time-out from little voices and constant interruptions. Maybe it's the busy life I lead and the job I do but I find myself craving peace sometimes. Did you know that peace is mentioned in the Bible 400 times? I reckon it must have also been pretty important to God for Him to mention it 400 times!
But I can't help wondering why peace is so very often elusive though! Some people find peace in prayer, or meditation or in nature.When we are peaceful we are able to reflect and think more clearly about any problems we may be having or just about life in general.
It's hard to feel peaceful when you are worried though. Last week I was so worried about an Australian citizenship test that we had to sit! We had to study a 60 page booklet on Australian history and politics etc. Not My Strong Point. I needn't have worried though- we all passed with full marks, God is good! We have been through so much - relocation, studies in a foreign country, temporary visas, bridging visas, permanent visas, piles of applications and all the other changes that emigration brings. Now that it's over though I am looking forward to finding a little bit of peace from all that paperwork!
What brings you peace? I would love it if you would leave me a message to tell me!
