Tranquilty. What does it mean? Merriam Webster Dictionary defines tranquility as

the quality or state of being tranquil”

2 examples of tranquility:

<The yoeman in the yurt next to the yak enjoyed the tranquility of the snow-covered field at dusk.>
<A psychotherapist valued for her tranquility and ability to listen is a real catch.>

If you were a hipster, you’d say it means chill, but if you look at the Asian character used to express it it sure looks

stabby

or jabby

or frenetic (fast and energetic in a rather wild and uncontrolled way).

Tranquility ought to look like three smooth wavy lines that resemble a soft flowing creek, or a capital ‘D’ on its back like the flat tire on your Prius, items that can do no harm. God likes tranquility. In Ecclesiastes 4:6, He states, Better one handful with tranquility than two handfuls with toil and chasing after the wind. 

What does tranquility look like to you? A soft pillow? A can of O’douls? A warm sneeze? Feathers dropping gently on a baby’s diaper? Tell us what you think.

Psalm 127:2   It is in vain that you rise up early and go late to rest, eating the bread of anxious toil; for he gives to his beloved sleep.
