Dec 7: It takes love to mend fences


I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word. –
Martin Luther King, Jr.

 Finally, brothers, rejoice. Aim for restoration, comfort one another,agree with one another, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you. – 2 Corinthians 13:11

The home, a safe haven.
But sometimes there’s disharmony.
Tempers fly, silence follows.
Understanding is lost, anger resides.

The first stone cast so often.
Regret follows, mistakes hard to acknowledge.
It’s tough to eat humble pie.
All unhappy, peace disrupted.

Even in families disunity happens.
What more strangers with issues.
The cost sometimes is too high.
Is love enough to mend fences?

Please continue to share with friends,
for the World needs our prayers.
Peace be with you. Amen.
