There is in every true woman’s heart, a spark of heavenly fire, which lies dormant in the broad daylight of prosperity, but which kindles up and beams and blazes in the dark hour of adversity.
Washington Irving


Survive this pain to start again.

"If God can part the Red Sea, He can surely part the pain away from me."

"Wage Peace." That’s a fairly popular bumper sticker around our neck of the woods. It’s the grown up version of the old Hippie song, "All we are saying is give peace a chance." Deep in our hearts we know there is a tremendous difference between being a peace lover and a peace maker. Peace lovers like the calm and security and illusion of "giving peace a chance." But peace has no chance unless it is waged! Peace is not a state that results because of a lack of wars; peace is the result of work, character, and sacrifice of those who are peacemakers. They wage peace. They take risks; they forgive wrongs; and they compromise on personal demands without sacrificing personal integrity. They are willing to pay the price to make and preserve the peace with integrity. No wonder God calls such people his children; they’re doing what is most like him!

All bitterness, anger and wrath, shouting and slander must be removed from you, along with all malice. And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ.
