Peace for Everyone

My painting above my fireplace mantle, by Donna Watson

---It is the Glad Season.
Thunder ebbs to silence and lightning sleeps quietly in the corner.
Flood waters recede into memory.
Snow becomes a yielding cushion to aid us
As we make our way to higher ground.--- MA

for sometimes a mosaic can be more beautiful than an unbroken pattern. -- Dawn Powell

--- All I want for Christmas is Peace
All I want is war to cease
In the homes and on the street
Peace on earth and joy to greet --- Kenneth Snow

---Underneath my Christmas tree
Christmas morn I hope to see
Headlines blaring PEACE ON EARTH!
For men of naught and men of worth -- KS

--- I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting for their light.  For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.-- 
Wendell Berry
