Peace on Earth...
"Peace on Earth"...What does that mean really, anyway? As I look around me, the world at large seems to be in chaos... When I look at my little world, family, friends, neighbors, people I go to church with...I see pain, I see disappointment, I see regret...same goes for me, when I look inside myself. Where is the peace? Why is it so elusive?
I have heard it said that, "Peace is not the absence of trouble, but, the presence of God." This I believe. It is only but for the Grace of God, go I. His presence in my life is my Peace. Nothing, no pill, no power, no personification of self importance, can bring me comfort in these trying times. ONLY the presence of the Prince of Peace can bring calm in the chaos.
Here at Love Sews Ministry, we try to offer a little bit of God's Peace to hurting souls. Our quilts can help bring a little bit of peace to every individual's heart as they wrap themselves in a "hug from Jesus". Each person and their specific situation is prayed over while we are busily stitching their quilt. We what them to know that there are people out there who care about them and what they are going through and that they are not alone. Not that we can fully understand each circumstance completely, but, we do care about their pain, and so does the Prince of Peace.
