When was the last moment of inner peace you remember?

I know this is going to sound really cheesy, but it's so true. I'd have to say when I'm with my boyfriend I feel inner peace... really.

After I went to dinner with my friend Wes during spring I guess it was back in March. Something about that whole night was just really peaceful and I left him feeling much better about life in general than I had in a long time.

I always have a inner peace because of my faith in Jesus Christ. I  depend on Him to bring me through the troubles and strife in life.

In answer to one of my prayers, I have been visited lately by the Holy Ghost during working hours, and though the world around me was noisy and chaotic,inside I had "inner peace".

Shortly after my mom passed away, one day at the cemetery... I just felt a wave of peace come over me, knowing that life does go on no matter how tough it can be at times, and she was finally pain-free no matter where she is now.

Well, I should start off by telling you that for a long time I had been going through hell. Someone very dear to me had died this past April. To make a very long story short, I had been having a hard time dealing with the fact that I never got to say good-bye or tell him how much I loved him. Then, one night a few weeks ago, I saw him in my dream. I told him I love him and hugged him before he went away. I woke up feeling so much better than I had in months. I think I may be at peace about that now.

That's a hard question. I'm usually at peace with myself. If we're talking about those transcendent moments that are rare and precious, then I'd say it was about 9 days ago during Mass.

Ouch. A while ago, I guess.

I would have to say sometime in late 1998, to early 1999, when the Legendary Big Guy Sarge was still healthy. Of course, the Legendary Big Guy died on 6/20/99, so that last time I had inner peace was in late 1998 to early 1999, before I found out he had the tumors that, coupled with his age, would be his demise. Also, my Grandparents were healthy at that point, as well. At least I will meet up with the Legendary Big Guy when I croak.

The day I graduated from college in may. I was standing on my porch and all alone for a minute ( finally ) and I finally got to celebrate it for myself and not with other people around me.

It has been quite awhile since a moment of real inner peace. Can be quite sure though it involved being outside and away from people.

I don't care to share that with the public. . .

My husband, my son, our big dog and I walked down by the river to this big rock we know. It juts out into the river. We climbed up onto it. My son was about 9 months old. He sat and watched the river in fascination. The dog sniffed around and then laid down amoung us. We all sat and watched the river go by and the ducks floating on it. It was quiet and peaceful. Warm and windy. A perfect day and a perfect moment.


I can't say that I remember. I suppose I must have had at least a moment of inner peace at some time in my life, but I can't really recall one

I had a flicker of deep delight this morning, seeing the sun filtering through the leaves of the trees outside the kitchen window.

When I sat in a stiffling classroom and read Bruce W. Powe read. He's got a great voice and he's very wise.

inner peace? does that even exist?

I think that would have to be as I was laying in bed with my boyfriend, right before the phone rang and I was informed that my best friend's mother passed away. That was Saturday morning.

K. Lampe, 20

It was months ago. I woke up one Saturday morning, looked out the window, and I felt like I didn't have a care in the world. I don't think I've ever felt as good as I did then.

I try to experience it every day through prayer.

Why, just yesterday. I was high, and was noticing how good a job God did on the planet Earth, and I remembered that He loved me.
