I'd like to thank Natasha for inviting me as a guest blogger for her Pinterest party -- Peace On Earth.
Being a part of a charitable choir, The Stairwell Carollers, whose focus from September to November is preparation for Our Xmas concert season gives me a special connection to our theme this week
PEACE ON EARTH
We spend a lot of time singing the words "peace on earth", but I want to challenge everyone out there to really stop for a moment and think about what those words mean.
Is it peace in your heart from your faith that you share with others as easily as you breath?
Is it the wind whispering through the trees and the leaves whispering back that they are forever one with life?
Is it the knowledge that the cost is so dear because Peace is worth the whole world?
Is it that the Earth's beauty is almost to much to bear?
Or that Love is the proof.
Or is it that you Love the world and the creatures that are in it?
Or is it simply in the eyes of a child?
And in the hands of the children.
