  1. This was exactly what I needed to read today. Thank you for sharing simple ways to bring more peace.

  2. Jennifer,
    Great small steps to take to harness some peace in our lives. I don’t know anyone who couldn’t use a little more peace. Look for the good and point it out…Amen! How about give thanks for all those who have fallen and all those who serve so that we may enjoy our freedom today. Let’s dwell on that with gratitude. Did you know there is an exact minute for remembrance of those who have died? It’s 3 pm. local time. Amtrak engineers will all sound their horns at 3 pm. Listen for it, remember, and give thanks.
    Blessings,

  3. Jennifer,

    This world was running on hyper drive. Then suddenly we halted everything. Everyone panicked & there seemed to be no peace. We missed our normal pace & people. It has been going so long that most have lost their peace & calm. I believe God wanted to get our attention. He wants us to commune with Him. We were so busy rushing from activity to activity that we didn’t take time to talk with Him on a daily basis. Literally we were becoming worn out people. You have given us some great soul care ideas to help ease our weary souls. Your ideas are simple & easily manageable. We should always think about others. More so in times of crisis. Just do one act of kindness-call/text or write a card to a friend. Offer to shop for those who can’t get out, buy needed supplies for organizations, etc. Just look outside of yourself & see the needs around you. Helping others always gives us more joy. God said “it is better to give than to receive.” For true inner peace just turn & talk to Jesus. Ask Him to alleviate all your fears & open your eyes & ears to the world outside of yourself.

    May God bless all our soldiers on this Memorial day 🙂

    Blessings 🙂

  5. Thank you for these wise steps we can take toward peace, Jennifer. It’s easy to blame our lack of peace on others: the kids who squabble, the boss who grumps, the commuters who annoy, the neighbor who irritates, even world leaders who exasperate, etc. But the trait of peace is accessible from within, always available IF we keep our minds focused on God (Isaiah 26:3). Lord, help me do just that at the first sign of worry or discontent!
