PEACE and quiet...

I'm constantly looking for peace and quiet in my home. It's not about who's right or who's wrong or what's's about the solution that causes the least noise in the end! I even tell my son that sometimes. I want peace and quiet, and if I can reasonably get to the peace and quiet, then that's the path that I'm going to take.

Really, moments of peace and quiet in the house are few and far between. But, for me, true peace comes from God. In the midst of my circumstances--whether it be crying kids or whatever--I can still have peace. I can even have quiet--not outwardly, but inwardly. In the end, it becomes my choice to choose the peace and quiet that's so readily available!


  1. Amen! I totally agree! great post Shelley!

  2. whenever my kids or husband ask me what I want for christmas, mothers day, answer is always the same "peace and quiet". It's a mom's greatest wish right?
