Expecting Peace and Quiet for Christmas?

Christmas commotion is in the air,
Noise intruding everywhere;
My heart desires a restful space,
My mind searches for a quiet place.

Finally, I remembered where:
I found peacefulness in prayer!
Here God’s presence calmed my soul;
I talked to Him, He made me whole.

Receiving His blessings one by one,
I felt forgiven when I was done.
Jesus Christ came so I could know
Life’s fullest love He alone can show.

Now, Christmas plans face scrutiny,
Time with the Lord takes priority;
I found amazing joy and grace
When I discovered prayer’s peaceful place.
