Happy International Peace Day! (If you are reading this after Sept. 21, go ahead and celebrate anyway.) The goal of the day is to enjoy peace for one day. If one day, why not one more? And one more after that?

Is peace more than the absence of war?
Enjoy these links as you contemplate the meaning of "peace."
Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me
Peace like a river
Peaceful, easy feelin'
On earth, peace, goodwill to all
The peace that passes understanding
Peace, I leave with you, my friend
Shalom, Salaam, Pax, Paz, Paix
Peace train
Peace and quiet
Peace Corps
Peace pipe
Nobel Peace Prize
Peace and justice
What do you think of when you think of peace?


  1. Great post!! Love the Thomas the Train clip :)

  2. Thanks for your peace-filled post, Jane!
    I think of freedom ... from violence, stress, worry, illness, burdens, and all things non-peaceful, but especially the perfect peace we have through Jesus--the guarantee He gives us of heaven!
    PEACE & JOY to YOU!
