World Peace


A young student I was working with the other day was rattling off her very long list for Santa and I smiled at her desires, varied and marvelous. We kept on working and it was a few hours before she stopped and looked at me. “What about you,” she inquired, “What do you want for Christmas?” Without really thinking, I replied quite honestly, “World peace.” She cocked her head and looked at me quizzically. “Peace,” I reiterated. She frowned and said nothing else as she went back to her work. I realized that my wish was as equally as impossible as this young girl’s shopping list.

What is your heart’s desire this Christmas?



About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
