Peace and Blue

Our Christmas lights on the outside of our home have always been red or white....and our Christmas tree is usually strung with white lights and adorned with colored ornaments.

For some reason, I have been particularly fond of the color Blue this year.  I tried to find blue lights for my tree, but could not find them anywhere.    I guess this is not the actual truth...
I did find some before Thanksgiving and decided against them.  When I had finally made up my mind to go with blue, the store was sold out of them.    I shopped at many other stores, but could not find them....

So....this year, my tree is shining bright again, with white lights.  I still love it and my decorations that are dangling from the branches, still make it amazingly beautiful.  NO BLUE around here...this year!!

When I see or think of the color mind thinks  PEACE!!

Isn't that a beautiful word?  It gives me chill bumps to think about sweet Peace.

Peace is......God's presence, His comfort!   It is also Stillness,
Tranquility, Calmness, silence, and serenity.

God's peace is there for us, even when we are walking in the deep valleys and in times of trouble.  It is up to us to ask God to cover us with Peace.

 Philippians 4:7 

 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, 

will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Listen.....This means that we do not have to be afraid, nor  

do we have to worry!!  God longs to give us such sweet peace!

He longs to give us peace that goes beyond anything that 

we can understand!!

May each of you be blessed with wonderful Peace throughout

this Christmas season!!

Beautiful.Blue does have a peace about it,but nothing compared to the peace from God.I have two small trees,one with blue and the other with red.

I love the blue, too. But I must say it does not look at all Christmasy, it is rather somber. It just doesn't seem quite YOU!

Hi Shug!

Beautiful thoughts for the season!! I'm kind of a stick-in-the-mud, when it comes to my tree, I love the country theme, with pine cones, berries and white lights. But, blue lights are so gorgeous - I guess there's always next year!

Many years ago I had blue lights on our tree. I miss those lights! Thanks for sharing your raccoon in the freezer story with me! It gave me a great laugh!
