  1. “Jesus, Emmanuel, with us, for us, despite us- offering all of Himself, the ultimate lasting peace.” Simply true & beautiful. Thank you for sharing, Tasha!

  2. I was praying for peace this morning – in my heart, in my home, in our community and in our world. Jesus is the source. Thank you for your message.

  3. Tasha,

    What confounds me is peace is ALWAYS available, and yet I’m quick to reach for so many other things that never satisfy. Your words are a poignant reminder of how easy it is to want a thing while forgetting we need a Person. xoxo

    • I second your thoughts…so hard to remember when in the midst of the battles. Thankfully our Jesus.. loves us faults and all and is a loving forgiving God. ♥️✝️

  4. Thank You Lord for never giving up on me and Your other children in the Faith Family. I have 3 lovely, kind and intelligent daughters. They are all different in their aspirations. I am thankful they know the love of Christ. So often I forget that’s all they need to navigate this tedious Journey of life. Often I forget that my mother wanted things for me that I did not want but God helped me every step of the way.

    Our children act like they don’t know what peace is or how to compromise to ensure peace. I should be able to remind them that Peace is Jesus and our relationship with Him in all aspects of our lives.

    Keep Faith and Hope Alive.

    Enjoy your day.


  5. Praying for peace and rest and above all joy in my home, family and work. Dear friends I do have an unspoken prayer request this morning.

    Blessings to all, Vivian

    • Dear Vivian, may you be confident God is working in & thru you to accomplish His will in all our circumstances. Praying you will be keenly aware of God in the details even when others don’t even know the broad strokes. Ain’t God wonderful!
      Blessings & prayers!

    • Vivian,

      Praying for you sweet sister. May God send His everlasting peace & comfort to your home, family & work. May you find contentment in Him alone!


  6. Dear Tasha, my 3 daughters are grown, with daughters of their own. The chaotic family times are much fewer now. But when they happen (like over our holidays) it’s sometimes hard to find peace. This year, after the holidays, I sat down and wrote lists of what went well and what didn’t. My list of happy moments was so much longer than the short list of glitches. Try to find the beauty in the chaos. Soon things will be too quiet much of the time. It sounds like you are finding your way, with God’s help!

  7. Love this! Love the transparency.
    Sometimes the spilled milk (or orange juice) can steal our peace. This is a great reminder to seek the ultimate Peacemaker on the days the orange juice tries to take over! Lol.
    Good bless.

  8. Tasha,

    Life is hard & messy. We, myself included, get frustrated, irritated & just plain upset with how life is going these days. We need to remind ourselves that the peace that surpasses all understanding only comes from Jesus. We have to take time daily to sit & be with Him. We should teach our children to do that also. That will help give some harmony to the home.

    Blessings 🙂
