When I sang this song last night at mass and again this morning, my eyes filled with tears. I long to know this peace every day, yet memories prevent it. Yet, I also know there is a Peace that is beyond our human understanding, a Peace that soothes every heartache…Meggan and all our deceased loved ones know that Peace.
I cry easily at this time of year because deep in my being the raw pain rears its ugly head and rises to the surface. It's always there, just so much darker now. Like a thief in the night, it robs me of Peace, and some days I break into a million little pieces….sharp like shards of glass. Journaling helps….and entering a church is of monumental importance. Oddly enough(or not), Peace greets me when I enter a quiet church. In the stillness I become more settled, surrounded by that which can only be explained through the heart. And it is in those moments, I sing….In You, O Lord, I have found my Peace….I have found my Peace.
Where do you find your Peace?
