As the portal of this year closes and the gateway to the new year opens, some reflective points to ponder, if you wish, about nurturing your peace of mind.
“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world gives, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” John 14:27. Consider- if we have been given peace, then, like “rain that does not need watering” (Efrat Cybulkiewicz), we already have within us, the peace that we seek.
