If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peacefully with all.  Romans 12:18

As horrible as war is, sometimes it is necessary, as it has become for the besieged people of Ukraine defending their homeland.  For those of us fortunate to have a choice, we can exercise this choice to be peacemakers in all our interactions.  If we consciously, mindfully, strive to live peacefully with those around us, our lives will touch others, who may be inspired to be peacemakers too.

Dear God – Let there be peace on Earth and let it begin with me.  In Your name, Amen
