Dec 13: The colour of joy

The pink candle is the candle of joy.

Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset. – Saint Francis de Sales

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in your faith, so that in the power of the Holy Spirit you may be rich in hope.
– Romans 15:13

It is the third Sunday of Advent.
Pink is the colour of joy.
A reminder of this coming joy.
The joy of the baby’s arrival.

This joy radiates internal peace.
He brings us His peace.
A peace that heals the soul.
A pink rose to symbolise peace.

The world is bleeding.
Hate dominates, for peace is dying.
It frightens me, I am overwhelm.
Even with my neighbour, where is peace?

Do I dare to offer a pink rose to my enemy?
To offer peace is a start to end hate.
His is the promise of paradise,
Eternal peace in His Kingdom.

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
