There is a word that I discovered in a monastery here in Perth called New Norcia, that has haunted and comforted me ever since we met.
The dictionary definition of the word is ‘the kiss of peace’.
My husband has the most precious habit, it is one that I cherish every single time he does it. He comes over to me simply and kisses me tenderly on the forehead.
A simple little act of intimacy, that every time he does it, I breathe a little deeper and know everything is going to be okay.
I have spent the whole day with people today, mostly interviewing for the creative internship and catching up with dear friends.
Towards the end of the day after many stories both good and challenging, I felt my shoulders lagging and my heart feeling heavy.
Honestly choosing the right intern is a big decision as every interview has been heartfelt and special in its own way.
Also some hard news of a friend undid me a little and my heart became heavy.
Then something changed. A little prayer, a lightening of a load, the kiss of peace.
A peace that is unexplainable.
A peace that is supernatural.
A peace that reassured me everything is going to be okay.
Lately I have had this song on repeat and the song does the same, it brings me a kiss of peace.
Are you heavy burdened?
Do you need rest?
Are you longing for peace?
Close your eyes and listen to this song, I pray the kiss of peace comes upon your head and your heart would be a little lighter today.
All my love
