Peace


With so much troubling talk all around us,
I've been thinking a great deal about peace

and how I can't control the atmosphere everywhere
but I can bring a gentle spirit,

a kind word,

a smile everywhere I go.


I can't change everything for good
but I can do something small...



I can cook someone sick a hot meal
and pass out snacks to the homeless man at the traffic light.

If you're lonely, I can listen.


Merry Christmas, friends.

Tidings of comfort and joy!

Let's leave a trail of compassion and care everywhere we go.


Let peace begin here.
With us.
