LAST Friday (November 11) was Armistice Day; marking the moment on the ‘Eleventh Hour of the Eleventh Day of the Eleventh Month’ the ‘Peace’ was signed at the end of the First World War.
This past Sunday all over our nation thousands remembered the millions who gave their lives in the two World Wars and in the many subsequent conflicts.
Unfortunately ‘Peace’ does not last as can be seen from all the war zones across the world today causing distress and death to countless innocent victims.
Sadly there can be a lack of ‘Peace’ even in lands like ours where there is no warfare but it can come between political parties; management and workers and even more sadly in families.
Maybe in our lives we feel a lack of ‘Peace’ and a sense of disharmony but there is a ‘Peace’ which can bring calm and harmony to our everyday living.
When he was on earth, Jesus Christ said these great words, “Peace I leave with you, my Peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. In me you may have Peace”.
Wearing our Poppy with pride we remembered the great sacrifice made by so many to bring freedom to so many lands.
But let us also remember the ‘Peace’ that comes from God because of the great sacrifice made by the Lord Jesus Christ dying on the cross for each one of us.
