Peace

Sleep in heavenly peace...

Christmas day at night is peaceful for me. For almost a month, we have built up this holiday season; and now, the dishes are done, the leftovers put away, the gifts unwrapped, and there is... peace.

I love this week between December 25th and December 31st. There's a "Christmas spirit" still in the air, neighbors still have their Christmas lights up, there's still one more celebration to be had, but there is peace this week; like we are all "celebrating Christmas", but quietly, without the self-imposed or otherwise-imposed bustle. I enjoy it.


May the LORD bless you and keep you;
May the LORD make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The LORD lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.

~Numbers 6:24-26
