True calm and peace is to feel content even when everything around you is falling apart. A lifelong friend shared this sentiment on her Facebook page and it really resonated with me.
Earlier I wrote about how the birth of Jesus was a very noisy event this post made me rethink that. Yes, it was a noisy event. But Mary was indeed calm in spirit. This is a good reminder of how we are to be.
We were not created to be worriers. We are meant to be calm in all situations. If we are not calm, we need to rethink either why we are in that situation, or we need to remember who is truly in control. If we are meant to be in control, we need to take back that control and be at peace. In all times and in all places we need to find calm.
