Peace

What better time of year to be thinking about Peace than this week.  I had a thought in church recently and it was this…”Only those who have made it through the valley of death can truly appreciate the blessing of peace.” I returned home and I thought I might write an item on peace and the thought came to me, “What have others said about peace.” I found this list and decided that they all said it better than I might and so I decided to just share with you the words of others.
