~~~DONA NOBIS PACEM~~~

 
 
The picture I chose for my peace globe was taken at the site of the Oklahoma City bombing.  We were there in 2008.  There were so many, many memorial tokens left on the fences they have allowed them to remain.  My photo is just a minute representation of the love and devotion to those who died that day.
 
This is a hymn from my childhood - it's words are so true today.

There comes to my heart one sweet strain,
A glad and a joyous refrain,
I sing it again and again,
Sweet peace, the gift of God’s love.

 Peace, peace, sweet peace,
Wonderful gift from above,
Oh, wonderful, wonderful peace,
Sweet peace, the gift of God’s love.

----Peter P. Bilhorn, 1887

We often sing the song Dona Nobis Pacem at church. I love it. It will be playing in my head all day, and that's OK with me:)

Peace and hugs...

I found you from Dona Nobis Pacem. I love your site. I’m going to poke around a little bit, but don’t worry I’ll put everything back where I found it!!

May we all walk the path of peace with love in our hearts so no one ever mourns a loss caused by violence again. Peace and Understanding!
