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.com. 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
