Dec 7: It takes love to mend fences

fruits_english_garden_DSC_0933

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.

I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira
