I believe this is one of the hardest ones to follow. Many times we allow our emotions to get the better of us, and we lash out in anger...but the Peace Our Savior talks about is hard to achieve without HIM.

We need HIM in order to be a peacemaker!

Thank you dear friend for sharing this series...the painting is just lovely.

May Our Lord bless you & keep you,

Maria

In an age when everyone is talking about peace (and not war) we need to remember that true peace begins in our hearts and homes first. For me, strife is so often a first resort; my prayer is for God's love in my heart.

Beautiful post...
something that can be hard
to put into practice at times...
but it is attainable by God's
good grace. Lovely words, Mrs.B too! ;)

Hope you have a great rest of the week!

Dear Raeann ~ I *LOVE* the Sermon on the Mount...so full of rich truths! We could spend our whole lives just seeking HIS help to live out all those things in HIS way!! Thankfully HE promises to be with us each step of the journey! :)

With Love,
