peace be with you

hello, lovies.

i feel crappy today. i'm still sick. and now mom's sick too. i haven't talked to dad or jordyn today, but let's pray they feel fantastic today, okie dokie??

i hope you are all enjoying your wednesday! today is also the International Day of Peace.
The world may have its reasons for wanting peace, and that's great and wonderful. I am thankful for it.

But as believers, let's remember why we seek peace, fight for peace, and love peace.
It's a little bit different than why the world wants peace:

Pray for peace in Jerusalem. May all who love this city prosper.
Psalm 122:5-7

Look at those who are honest and good, for a wonderful future awaits those who love peace.
Psalm 37:36-38

And work for the peace and prosperity of the city where I sent you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, for its welfare will determine your welfare.”
Jeremiah 29:6-8

But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
Galatians 5:21-23

For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared.
Ephesians 6:14-16

Work at living in peace with everyone, and work at living a holy life, for those who are not holy will not see the Lord.
Hebrews 12:13-15

Grace and peace to you from the one who is, who always was, and who is still to come; from the sevenfold Spirit before his throne;
Revelation 1:3-5

And those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of righteousness.
James 3:17-18

i love you all!
happy wednesday!
