Blog Blast for Peace





During my blog visiting today, I came across a beautiful post entitled Dona Nobis Pacem - Write on My Heart Every Word. Apparently it's connected to something called Blog Blast for Peace (an event I'm not familiar with).

I was sufficiently intrigued as the post author, Mimi Lenox, entwined the very moving love story of her grandparents with her own heart's cry for peace on earth. Although it's a lengthy piece, it is definitely worth a read.  Here is an excerpt:

When my Papa was middle-aged, he found the love of his life.
She was my grandmother.
And through the years I was privileged enough
to watch them live out that love right in front of me.
While they surely had struggles and bumps like everyone else,
they had something else too. What was it?
I am pleased to report that I don’t know.........

She never smiled at him; she smiled into him.
He smiled into her...........

(The posting ends with this)
Maybe we keep asking for the same struggle
and getting exactly what we ask for
because we’re not ready to lay down
the most powerful weapon we have
Love.


Wishing you peace on earth as it is in heaven,
Brenda
