Picture Perfect: Peace

“Blessed are the peacemakers.”  Peace is something we have to make.  I look for a recipe.  Maybe in Joy of Cooking?  Pawpaws, peas, peaches, peanuts, no, nothing about peace. 

A seasonal song floats through my mind, “pray for peace, people everywhere.”  Could it come down from above?  I look up; it is raining.  That can be peaceful, soothing.  Can we let our rancour, our grudges, dissolve as the rain carries away the mud? 

Here the rain goes down the hill to the river where fishermen have built a footbridge, a private initiative, crossing borders, both natural and man-made since it joins two departments.

Like water under the bridge, let bygones be bygones.  Build bridges between us.  Another song—“let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.”

About djdfr

Daily life experiences by a Franco-American woman living in the Breton countryside form the basics of this blog. Gardening, watercolour, choral music, food, are some of my interests. I seek to balance the physical, mental and spiritual. I am a free believer praying from the Bible, the Qur’an and The Revelation of Arès. In 1974, with Jesus as the messenger, and in 1977, manifesting as a stick of light, Our Creator spoke directly to a man in Arès, France, named Michel Potay. The message is in the book “The Revelation of Arès”. It is a call for us to change, to practice love, peacemaking, forgiveness, to free ourselves from all prejudice, to develop our spiritual intelligence, the intelligence of the heart.
