The Prince of Peace: Find Lasting Peace Through Jesus Christ

Find peace in a troubled world by learning more of Jesus Christ. This Easter season, learn principles of peace from the #PRINCEofPEACE.

More than 2,000 years after Isaiah called Him the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ is still our key to peace. To learn more of the different principles of peace, click on each heading below.

Peace through Faith

“As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.”
—Mark 5:36

Peace through God’s Word

“But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.”
—Matthew 4:4

Peace through Compassion

“And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.”
—Matthew 14:14

Peace through Gratitude

“And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.”
—John 11:41

Peace through Prayer

“And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.”
—Matthew 21:22

Peace through Forgiveness

“Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven.”
—Luke 6:37

Peace through Repentance

“Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”
—Isaiah 1:18

Peace through Hope

“If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable. . . . For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.”
—1 Corinthians 15:19, 22

 Wishing you and yours a very blessed Easter season.

Black & White Sunday – Traces of the Past

Paula at Lost in Translation is hosting Black & White Sunday: Traces of the Past. I decided to post this one as it brought back happy memories. Summer of 1986, the last time I went horseback riding. It was at a women’s retreat outside of Dallas, Tx.  Way too long ago! I have always had a love for horses. I think they’re amazing creatures.

Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge and Sunday Trees

Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge (COB) is all about those great photos that you take which really don’t seem to fit into a common category.

Statue placed by Orlando Universal Resort at Lake Eola in downtown Orlando, Florida.

Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, while under construction in 2014, downtown Orlando, Florida, across from my office at the time.

The next two photos, besides being Odd Balls are being used as part of Becca’s Sunday Trees!

Crooked/leaning tree.  Did you ever come across one of those pictures that you just can’t figure out why you ever took it in the first place?

I have absolutely no idea what kind of tree this is. It was taken in 2014 at Leu Gardens in Winter Park, Florida. I took it because it looks like gargantuan peanuts growing in the tree!
