12 Reflections on Paintings for Faith Formation – Painting #3 “Quest for Peace”, and Reflection #3 “Peace be with you”.

Peace be with you,

Let there be peace amidst all tribulation.

The weary and burdened find comfort in Him.

The peace He gives is like a soothing energizing wind,

amidst all toils and strife.

Let our heart not to be troubled,

For the peace He leaves with us, no one can take away.

Let our life be a song peace, and  the dance of peace,

to heal the broken world.

The peace makers are the sons and daughters of God.
