Fifteen - Tranquility

Quietude, which some men cannot abide because it reveals their inward poverty, is as a palace of cedar to the wise, for along its hallowed courts the King in his beauty deigns to walk. ~~ Charles H. Spurgeon
When we are unable to find tranquility within ourselves, it is useless to seek it elsewhere. ~~ Francois de La Rochefoucauld
Feeling tranquility like never before this Christmas. Not because all is perfect in my world, but all is well with my soul.

Even with all the turmoil going on in my head, it's so easy for me to find tranquility this time of year.

Every day I can't wait for it to get dark so I can turn on the tree, light some candles, and feel the peace wash over me. I'll be thinking of you when I turn the tree on tonight. ;p

And I will think of you - you described my tree/candle/peace washing coziness perfectly!
