What are the ways that make for peace? A hunger for beauty, for clarity of purpose, a complete dependence on you, on me, my peace daughter. Drawn by the hands of one just come out of surgery and the one drawn becoming sick. A tired look in her eyes. Where else can we go for the ways that make for peace? Your nose, precious, marble-like. Your skin, clear. The gap between your teeth, humorous. The refinement of your lips, purposeful. Like the marks of a child, hungering for beauty, for meaning, for purpose, for peace.

 

But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without a trace of partiality or hypocrisy. 18And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace for those who make peace.  James 3:17
