noun:1 freedom from disturbance; quiet and tranquility: you can while away an hour or two in peace and seclusion. mental calm; serenity: the peace of mind this insurance gives you. 2 a state or period in which there is no war or a war has ended: the Straits were to be open to warships in time of peace | [in singular] : the peace didn't last. [in singular] a treaty agreeing to the cessation of war between warring states: support for a negotiated peace. freedom from civil disorder: police action to restore peace. freedom from dispute or dissension between individuals or groups: the 8.8 percent offer that promises peace with the board. 3 (the peace) a ceremonial handshake or kiss exchanged during a service in some Churches (now usually only in the Eucharist), symbolizing Christian love and unity.
Peace can mean many things, what is common in all the definitions is the calm.  The absence of turmoil, disruption, and confusion.  Peace is....

May the sweet spirit of Peace move through you.....however you define it.

    Peace, in all of its multi-layered meaning, is indeed a profound state of being. At anytime of year but especially at this time, we talk about “goodwill” and I would also add that kindness is soul enhancing and spirit lifting as well.
