Dec 24: You have to treasure His gift

At home: My Christmas decorations of candles and nutcrackers.

First keep peace with yourself, then you can also bring peace to others. – Thomas a Kempis

Turn away from evil and do good, seek peace and pursue it. – 1 Peter 3:11

I am excited, it’s Christmas Eve.
He is coming, bringing peace.
The gift of peace for humanity.
His Peace starts with me.

Evil will try anything and everything.
It will lay traps to waylay me.
Entice me to forget peace, to think evil.
Instead I think Emmanuel – God with us.

The angels are gathering with trumpets.
Waiting to herald to the World.
The Star guiding all through the night.
We, waiting the Christ child to come.

I can hear bells ringing, choirs singing.
The churches celebrating the Christ Mass.
Peace reigns in each and everyone.
You have to treasure His gift… Peace.

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