A Quiet Evening

From the outside I can hear someone's TV, a woman selling kerosene for lamps, people in the street laughing... but inside my home there is perfect calmness and stillness. Only the swish of the air-conditioner (thank you, Lord!) and the rhythm of the keys on my laptop. This is nice. This makes me feel peaceful.

But, this is a fake peace. This is a peace built on circumstances - on the setting of the sun, a full stomach, tranquil decor...

So, I pray that my peace comes not from what is around me, but Who is Within me.
