Blessed are the Peacemakers
Whatever your views on the different conflicts going on in the world right now and in the past, please take some moments today to pray for all those affected by them. Let us pray for the people living in warzones and for their safety and protection, for soldiers in danger and far from their families, for the heads of the armies and governments that they would seek God's guidance as they negotiate and plan so that they might work together to bring about peace, and for the people waiting for loved ones to come home and for those whose loved ones will never come home.


Socks - Jessie Pope (1915)


Shining pins that dart and click
In the fireside's sheltered peace
Check the thoughts that cluster thick
20 plain and then decrease.

He was brave - well, so was I
Keen and merry, but his lip
Quivered when he said good-bye
Purl the seam-stitch, purl and slip.

Never used to living rough,
Lots of things he'd got to learn;
Wonder if he's warm enough
Knit 2, catch 2, knit 1, turn.

Hark! The paper-boys again!
Wish that shout could be suppressed;
Keeps one always on the strain
Knit off 9, and slip the rest.

Wonder if he's fighting now,
What he's done an' where he's been;
He'll come out on top, somehow
Slip 1, knit 2, purl 14.


But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness.

James 3:17-18
