10But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. 12This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."
13Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
14"Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."
Peace is not sought by the aggressive, revolutionaries and dangerous people.
The frightened, the meek, the helpless, the wounded, the tired, the starving, the refugees, the persecuted, the motherless, the little ones are praying and waiting for peace.
Thank you Mimi for planning and sustaining interest in this BLOGBLAST FOR PEACE.
Great post, Felisol! You quoted the most well-known quote from the New Testament! Peace be to you! :)
Yes, true peace comes through Jesus. Well said; I love Scripture. Here is the US, people are worried about the economy, terrorism, etc but no President can solve all of our problems.
Sending *Peace*Love*Light* to ALL!!
Peace needs to be in us so we can instill it in our children...so we can try to instill it in others. It must start with us as individuals.
We must follow the second great commandment to love our neighbors as we do ourselves.
The use of Scripture adds so much to your blog. Peace would be the norm if all turned to the Lord for guidance...
Peace to you and yours.
Dear John C,
I so agree with you.
We cannot even pretend to perform as peace-makers if we don't have peace inside.
I have to admit that I often have struggled praying The Lord's Prayer;
Forgive us our trespasses, like we forgive who trespasses against us.
I have added a "help me forgive".
The wonder is that He answers this help-prayer too.
Without me hardly knowing it, the barrier of animosity against my neighbor disappeared.
A miraculous allied, our Prince of Peace.
I had my lap top on at your site and with your music playing.
Well I have to take Mom Golden out and when I came to turn off the computer here I see this wonderful post!
God's peace! All through the year and just not at Christmas. How great can THAT be!
Debbie is right. No president can solve our problems but with the people of God praying for Mr Obama and the govenment, then something good will surely happen!And each of us can pray for the leaders of our own country and get the same results!
And Ralph, what a true statement. The peace of God must be inside us!
Jesus inside us!
Our prayer is this dear Felisol
"I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, ntercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men;
For kings and for all that are in authority; that we may live a quiet and peaceful life in all godliness and honesty.
Great post my dearest friend..Love Terry
Love this post and the heart you put into it.
Peace to you and yours,
The Hallelujah chorus playing in the background reminds me that peace is fromGod alone and Jesus is the Prince of Peace.
Shalom to you Felisol
Hi Felisol, this is an excellent Scripture for a peace blog.
I generally think of it during the Christmas season but in reality this is what peace is all about any time of the year.
I have never eaten a shrimp sandwich like the ones you showed. I am thinking that little white round thin piece under the shrimp and over the bread is a cheese of some sort?
Sorry I didn't get to you on Tuesday. I had a hectic week but did do some posting.
I so deeply respect the optimistic realism in your comments.
Hope you have a lot of followers.
I am happy you like the music I've put up for my own and fellow bloggers' entertainment.
I have been looking for a song called "He the pearly gate will open".
We sang that in my father's funeral.
It's a song for all occasions, at least so we felt.
thanks for taking time.
You make a difference with your engagement.
May peace be your reward.
Don't we all love the Hallelujah Chorus.
My father said he looked forwards to be joining the heavenly choir just for that song.
Bet they are rehearsing and tat Handel is the conductor.
I agree. The gospel of peace is the essence,- of all the seasons.
Terje's shrimp sandwiches are a genuine 1950 model. A lettuce leaf and a parsley tuft may be added by ambitious housewives.
The main ingredients are; fresh spiral wheat loaf, dairy butter, slices of fish loaf, fresh shrimps, mayonnaise and a slice of lemon. (lemon also essential)
White or black pepper may be added.
