Day 14 - Peace equals power

When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.

Jim Hendrix

Having an attitude of peace and calm is priceless.  But there can be no peace without unity. When people are thankful for each other and choose to live in unity, they experience the power of peace.  But the power won’t come, if we stay bitter and angry.  

Love is the power of peace.  Peace is a bond, as it unites people and makes them live in brotherly love with each other. Unity promotes the important notion of living peacefully together or side by side.  It’s the feeling of oneness, togetherness, harmony for the common goal.

The angels sang Joy to the World.   Peace comes to all at Christmas and together we can make a difference.

This ends a week that was devoted to thoughts of peace, tomorrow we light the 3rd candle of Advent and I’ll be sharing more thoughts about JOY.

If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other. 

Mother Teresa

The ugly lil' cynic says, "No way" … but hope says, "Why not?" Praying for peace!

This one on a family level always gets me. We have friends who have been married over 60 years and they give the impression they are not happy with each other. She cuts him down and he sorta ignores her and does his thing. They like separate vacations as well as together vacations. They MUST be happy at some level, but I need peace and love in our relationship. When we get crossed up, one of us will expend an olive branch. We desire PEACE,
good one again,
Sherry & jack

I never heard that Jimi Hendrix quote before, but it's a powerful one. True, too, which is why it's so powerful, I guess.

Yes, peace. The peace that passeth all understanding, and it instills a quiet calmness within us, regardless of what's happening around us. If that makes sense.


peace is priceless for sure.

Power of love. That’s a great quote.

I like the thought when people are thankful for each other then they can be united in peace. I do think we need to be thankful for all those that God has put in our paths, even the ones that may be a bit difficult to get along with.
