Peace Quilted


Peace – we all want it.  But what is it?

Full Definition of PEACE

1:  a state of tranquillity or quiet: as

:  freedom from civil disturbance
:  a state of security or order within a community provided for by law or custom <a breach of the peace>

2:  freedom from disquieting or oppressive thoughts or emotions

3:  harmony in personal relations

4   a :  a state or period of mutual concord between governments

:  a pact or agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity

5—used interjectionally to ask for silence or calm or as a greeting or farewell

— at peace

:  in a state of concord or tranquillity

(“Peace.” Merriam-Webster, n.d. Web. 5 Dec. 2013.)

Yeah, that is one way to look at it.  But I believe there is more.  Peace is more than a state of harmony, more than a freedom from war.

I believe Peace is a Person – Jesus Christ.  

There can be NO PEACE without Him.

Unfold Your grace
Like my favorite quilt
Wrap me in mercy
As my life is rebuilt
Stitch me together
With love as the thread
Squares of life’s journey
Joined end to end
Bring warmth to my family
An heirloom passed down
Generation to generation
Peace quilted with down
