Finding Peace

By Jim Kyryluk

Peace is something many people dream of, pray for, and wish for. But what happens when you actually find it? What happens when peace becomes a reality?  

Many think they will find peace when they meet their true love, or when they achieve financial freedom. Others find it when they are close to nature, or find it within scripture. No matter how one finds peace, it is without question the greatest gift of all, for it is a gift from God. A gift that should never be taken for granted or dismissed, for it is truly the most divine gift anyone could receive. Peace is something that cannot be described. It must be felt, experienced, and embraced. Once you have experienced it,  you will want to scream it out for all to hear because it is the most wonderful feeling you will ever have. It is a calm, a stillness so profound, so incredible that words could never describe it. It is like falling into water that embraces you and warms you to your soul. 

Peace can be found in the simple things often overlooked.  Enjoying a ripe raspberry, giving a kind word of encouragement to someone down. Taking the time to marvel at a beautiful smile or a spectacular sunset. Peace is felt from within, for peace is inside every one of us. God hid it within us for us to find.  That is why it is so special - it is a gift from God.  

May peace find you as it has found me, and may you enjoy your raspberries.
