Peace Offerings!

"Fruitful Living" is the goal of the Christian life. Observing the fruit of the Spirit growing in our lives is very satisfying. It also displays concrete evidence that God is significantly moving in a person's heart. Today, we will examine the fruit of Peace, as seen through the world of animals & nature. Author Thomas Kempis wrote, "Seek true peace - not in earth, but in heaven; not in men, nor in any other creature, but in God alone."
I had a  very Peaceful" existence, until I got into the movies!
Oh Dear, Ewe are so "BAA..D"! Snuggling makes us both more Peaceful!
Christian Author & theologian Francois Fenelon wrote, " Resign every forbidden joy; restrain every wish that is not referred to God's will; banish all eager desires, all anxiety; desire only the will of God; seek him alone and supremely, and you will find peace."

Resting gives me the Peace I lack when chewing on bamboo!
I'm so at Peace in this world of play!

Christian author C. S. Lewis wrote, " God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing".

Peace is knowing my "Mommy" loves me & is near me!
Peace is knowing Ewe are by my side!
Christian author & theologian Martin Luther wrote," Peace is more important than all justice; and peace was not made for the sake of justice, but justice for the sake of peace."

Peace comes while I'm doing what I love to do with friends!

Peace is "soaking-up the rays" with my family! COOL!
Peace is knowing that someone who loves Ewe is nearby in a crisis!

 Christian author & preacher J.C. Ryle wrote," Never let us be guilty of sacrificing any portion of truth on the altar of peace".

Peace is being able to nap securely in a "Cool" place!
Peace is knowing that I'm responsible for my young!
 Christian Author & speaker Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. wrote, "Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal."

Peace is remaining calm, even when life is a "BEAR"!
Peace is floating & eating veggies with no motor boats!
Christian author & commentator Matthew Henry wrote, " Christ died He left a will in which He gave His soul to His Father, His body to Joseph of Arimathea, His clothes to the soldiers, and His mother to John. But to His disciples, who had left all to follow Him, He left not silver or gold, but something far better - His PEACE!"
Peace is hanging out with a loved one !

Peace is knowing that I nailed my dance routine!

 Sheep exhibit the most Peace while in their small groups, & being near their Shepherd.

Don't Ewe think this walk is so soothingly "Peaceful"?

 As Ewe face Ewer day & all that it encompasses, look to Ewer Shepherd for the Peace to take Ewe through!

"You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You."
Isaiah 26:3
