The word “Shalom,” in Hebrew was either a greeting or a good-bye and literally, meant “Peace!” Before any healing can take place there must be peace! We, however at times, think we have to wait until the world looks right, feels right – is acting as we think it should – to feel peace. This is a mistake! Peace lies within us all the time, in every situation; we have but to turn WITHIN to access it! When we do this, it will become our shield against the onslaught of worldly unrest that we face on a daily basis. “Peace I give you, not as the world gives” Shalom!
