Peace ~

Hi friends,

Well, it's FINISHED!  {it always feels so good to say that when a project has been in "The Pile" a long time!}




You know, it's never going to be my favorite quilted piece, even though I love the words and the meaning behind them. 

The finish tho ~ is worth the discipline.  Worth lots.  And it's nice to see it hanging up, and think about the message, and learn more about a 'peaceful finish' ~ sewing and in real life.   

May we all know {better} and {more} that real peace is truly, and only, through Jesus Christ.  There is always going to be evil in this world, folks.  (The Book of Job is a good start if you want to know more).  Peace is not coming to the United States through more gun laws, legislation, freakish 'good intentions' ~ pretty (and useless, meandering speeches), and the religions 'of the world' as our President referenced in his speech tonite to the Newtown CT community.  It won't be through politics, and it won't come in or through our culture, nor any human beings of this world.  

It is however, through a LIVING God.  And it is ours for the asking, if we will only do just that... 

Please... if you are a Christian professing Jesus Christ as your Savior, please join me in prayer, in asking our Abba Father God, from who all LOVE flows to ease the pain of those hurting with the recent shootings, and all those who hurt..He knows their pain; it was His own as well.  He loves us so much; we only need ask...  I pray that those broken and hurting hearts may know the healing peace of God - through His son ~ the Gentle, and Great Healer of all broken people, and a grief-stricken world of hurting hearts. 

Let's get on our knees... together. Amen.
