It's been a quiet week since that cold bug infiltrated our systems. Though being sick really bites, I've enjoyed just slowing down. For, with quiet comes simplicity. With simplicity, appreciation for God and His grace towards us. With gratitude, in turn, can bring peace.
I'm a real geek when it comes to words, their meanings, and how they sound (yup, I'm a pun lover!). I also love words in other languages...go figure(!). Lately, when I've been thinking of the word "peace", I've immediately thought of it's italian counterpart "pace".
[pace/peace (italian): freedom of the mind from annoyance, distraction, etc.]
[pace (english): a rate of movement...]
With entirely different roots to both of the words (peace - pax; pace - passus), it's more of an "interest" thing that these words overlap across two languages. But the irony of their spelt connection is what draws me to ask this spellbinding* question tonight ...
Is my living pace bringing me peace? Is yours?
