peace on earth…


Ego says, “once everything falls into place, I’ll feel peace.”

Spirit says, “Find your peace, then everything else will fall into place.”

~Marianne Williamson

As we end our Advent week of “Peace” I wanted to share the video/song below. It is one of my favorite Christmas carols featuring Bing Crosby and David Bowie. It was recorded from a “vintage” television special, layering the two songs: “Little Drummer Boy” and “Peace on Earth.” The music begins at 1:50 if you want to avoid the preliminary conversation.


May we continually choose — and pray for — peace (for ourselves, our loved ones, our communities and the world) even when the days can seem dark. May we dive deep within ourselves and find the place where “Peace simply is.” (Gerald May)

I send you each a blessing for peace and love this night~


May God bless you and keep you;
may God’s face shine upon you
and be gracious to you;
may God look upon you kindly,
and give you peace.

(Numbers 6:24)

    This post on peace was such a blessing to me, Donna…. the song, the benediction from Numbers, the snow scenes and the quote by Williamson. They were all so moving and as I spent time with each part, I found myself experiencing more peace. Thank you so much for guiding me on my road to a more peaceful life…and especially, a more peaceful Christmas!

    Donna,thank you for the beautiful posts on Peace. I awoke to a spectacular sunrise this morning and was filled with such a peace-filled feeling. I am so thankful for God’s gift of beauty. Then later I sat with Sacred Rhythms and was so moved by the thoughts, poems and the songs. I love the song, Let There Be Peace On Earth. Today my prayer is that it begins with me!
