As I came downstairs for my first cup of (late) coffee today, the stark prairie was preparing for sunrise. I walked outside in freezing temperatures with my camera. It was frosty and peaceful. But I didn’t realize how this capture would relate to my day. Sunday mornings are mostly hectic rather than peaceful at our house.
We headed to church where Nathan and I teach pre-school Sunday school weekly where we are studying fruits of the spirit. The kids pretend to be trees except we aren’t growing apples, oranges or bananas. We are growing love, joy and today, peace.
Peace is a much talked about word when we listen to news stories about global politics but how many of us actually seek out to be peacemakers? How many of us are growing and sharing peace? Today as we talked about peace with kids aged 2-5, I realized I should make sure I work to be a peacemaker myself rather than just talk about it to young children.
