At Peace? Or Is Your Nose Out of Joint?

I like to look at faces. When I saw this puzzle on clearance, I couldn't resist buying it.

She gets different hats, depending on the time of year and I change her jewelry occasionally.

Once when I was dusting her though, she got her nose out of joint.

She looked like she had gotten herself in a snit, as it were.

I giggled.

How easily we sometimes get ourselves in a snit; feeling our noses 'out of joint', due to a careless word or action.

Opportunities abound for us to get our feelings hurt--especially at this time of year.

Will we choose to live with our noses out of joint?

Or will we choose to live peaceably?

My Webster's defines 'peaceably' as "inclined or disposed to peace".


Today's reading in "Jesus Calling" by Sarah Young starts with:

"As this year draws to a close, receive My Peace. This is still your deepest need...My abundance and your emptiness are a perfect match...Thank Me for My peaceful Presence, regardless of your feelings..."

Will we stay in our self-imposed snit?

Or will we choose His Peace--the Peace that passes all understanding?


The choice is ours.
