Inner Peace Award



My benevolent and sweet friend, Don Charisma, has once again nominated me for another lovely award. Thank you, Don! My blessings are overflowing!

Conditions For Accepting The Award
The only “rule” for the inner peace award is that you write a short piece on why you are accepting it. I would suggest that you forward on to other bloggers who you think would like it, 3-10 up to you:)

Why I Accept This Award

What is inner peace? How can you achieve it? I search for it each day to feel closer to Our Creator. The only way to experience inner peace is to give of myself unselfishly by doing good deeds for others. By adding a little happiness to others is its own reward and thus bringing inner peace to my soul. I hope to bring some inner peace to my awardees.

The Awardees are:

Deanie Humphrys-Dunne

Paul G. Day

Sarah Mazor

Chris Graham

Mike Fedison

Bette Stevens

Jo Robinson

Mary Ann Vitale

Kelly Massey

Wynette Mills

Congratulations to all the awardees, may you find inner peace in your daily lives and spread it to others. After all, wouldn’t the world be a better place if we all did that?

My blog thought for the day:   Be there for someone in need today!

    Why I Accept This Award Our soul is constantly longing to find peace. Our daily lives are overwhelmed with burdens and anxieties. One way to find peace is to go to Jesus, the Prince of peace. It is important for me to go to the chapel for my weekly visit with Jesus, in the Holy Eucharist. I share with Him all my worries, joys, and needs. He gives me that peace that we all long for. I leave refreshed and ready to face the world. I try to keep this interior peace by shielding myself from all negativity and share goodness and love with others. Peace flows from you unto others. It attracts people and causes them to long for it.
