Peace on Earth

Dear Reader:

As you can see I have gotten in the Christmas spirit-a little here and there-but I am steadily moving towards my goal.

But then last night some ” bad elves” took over my photo inserts and froze everything … half in-half out.

I stopped and tried everything I knew to get the pictures to transfer in full but to no avail. In my frustration I hit something that deleted the whole blog post.

Don’t you find it, a little ironic, that I choose peace to discuss today about this month-December-being the time of Jesus’s birth-Peace on Earth-and my blog post vanishes before my eyes-and doesn’t reappear anywhere in drafts?

Who knows if this title or second picture will ever emerge-but it is a poster that states December is the month to express Joy, Gratitude, and Peace. Brene Brown has already shared her discovery that gratitude and joy are interwoven. I happen to think peace and truth are the same.

So until tomorrow when I share my epiphany about the relationship between peace and truth… look for your own inner peace.

The Dalai Lama says it best…” Do not let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace. ”

Today is my ” favorite ” day-Winnie the Pooh

I am grateful to all of you for being patient with me and my bad” computer elves” … so now with a deep breath and slight sigh of resignation… I hope I will leave all of you in peace… and my computer will get a good night’s sleep and be more cooperative today.

About Becky Dingle

I was born a Tarheel but ended up a Sandlapper. My grandparents were cotton farmers in Laurens, South Carolina and it was in my grandmother’s house that my love of storytelling began beside an old Franklin stove. When I graduated from Laurens High School, I attended Erskine College (Due West of what?) and would later get my Masters Degree in Education/Social Studies from Charleston Southern. I am presently an adjunct professor/clinical supervisor at CSU and have also taught at the College of Charleston. For 28 years I taught Social Studies through storytelling. My philosophy matched Rudyard Kipling’s quote: “If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten.” Today I still spread this message through workshops and presentations throughout the state. The secret of success in teaching social studies is always in the story. I want to keep learning and being surprised by life…it is the greatest teacher. Like Kermit said, “When you’re green you grow, when you’re ripe you rot.”
