Peace: noun  “freedom from disturbance; tranquility.”

This seamed like the perfect topic for this time of year.  Stress levels tend to rise as we all deal with traveling, family, gift buying, and maybe even hosting events and parties.  We hold our breaths just trying to get through it and it is supposed to be such a peaceful time of year right?  Did you ever watch a bride getting ready for her wedding?  They spend so much time organizing, picking out dresses, color schemes, who’s in the wedding, and dinner menus.  The stress comes from wanting  and expecting everything to be “perfect”.  I think that’s how we feel most of our daily lives.  We wait for peace to come from outside sources by expecting certain results.  These results we think come from someone, something, or some situation.  Instead of waiting for peace to find you, let’s stop expecting things to be perfect and find peace in the situation you are in right now.
