Gifts of the Season, From the Heart, Not the Pocket-From Coffee Hour @ Chickilt Power

Welcome to Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power and thanks for joining me for a little break. I hope you are enjoying this gift series. Grab your coffee and let’s get to some ideas of who to give this gift of peace to.

Have you ever heard the saying, “If Mamma isn’t happy, no one’s happy”? Oh, when will we as women, wives and/or moms realize that that we are the temperature controller of the house? And the crazy thing is we don’t have to be home to set it! 🙂 What I mean is our men often gauge their mood on ours. I’ll tell on myself to explain what I mean.

One time I came home and our four-legged children greeted me with such puppy love and I bent down to give them some love right back. Apparently, I had gotten into a habit of not greeting my husband that happily and so this particular day, there he was, down on the ground kicking his feet up in the air and wiggling as if he were a happy four-legged child! 🙂 That was a real eye-opener for me. And since CPM’s office is in our home, I really have to make a concerted effort to not only acknowledge the fact that he’s home, but to drop what I’m doing asap and greet him with the love and respect he deserves. That sets the temperature just right! 🙂 🙂 🙂

Okay, so back to who to give peace to. You may not think this has anything to do with the price of eggs, but let me give you a question to think about that goes with the temperature factor: When there is contention in the home, whether with our spouses or our children, do we add sparks and/or logs to the already burning fire or do we splash some water on the situation by being “at ease” in the midst of it all?

Is there someone you’ve harmed with your words or actions? HIS desire for us is to be “at ease and unharmed” in our relationships. As much as is possible with you, and me, we must live peaceably with others.

I don’t know about you, but I cherish these definitions of peace that I’ve discovered because they remind me of His love for us. What a sweet, sweet word picture, that He desires for us to be unharmed, to be at ease, to be whole!

Remember, you can’t give it if you don’t possess it . . .
