~ Dona Nobis Pacem ~

This is the entry for the Blog Blast For Peace, hosted by Mimi. Sharp eyed viewers will know that this was posted a year ago. Like Patti, we were working on proper photo software for our new Mac Mini, and are working on it. However, we do want to participate, and we are.

Future peace is the desire, the goal. And why not, as we see our kids Allegra and Cameron in earlier times. Over the years, they have not been taught to hate, but the parental units try to stress peaceful behaviors. We protected, cared for and loved them. Children are brought into our lives and we work to supply them with proper values. But in this world, hatred and warring are learned behaviors...but peace, as commanded by God, is the ideal. If we want peace, especially for our children, we need to practice it. So it, too, will be a learned behavior...

You're right, Ralph. We must PRACTICE peace! Peace and love to a dear blogger friend and his wife! :)

'So it, too, will be a learned behavior...'

Exactly so.

Peace to you, Ralph.

Ralph you are so eloquent with your words and you've found the perfect ones here today.
Hugs to you and Patti!

If we teach it to the kids it's bound to catch on.

Travis said...

The more we teach the values of peace, the more likely they are going to stick at some point.

Peace to you and yours.

This is a lovely post for Blog Blast Ralph and I couldn't agree more. If we want to leave the world a better place, teaching our children to love and to give something back is what is needed...Michelle

The faces of angels... may we show our youth that compassion and caring can be our guides, always.

May His peace be with you and yours.

Michelle said...

It really is the thought (and heart) that counts... and they're still awfully cute kids. :-)

Belated Peace Globe day best wishes to you.

I wish that all parents could speak peace and teach peace. It is sorely lacking in our world.

Thank you (and Patti) for being grassroots peacemakers from the beginning of their lives.
