Peace on Earth? And Random Pics :)


"I heard the bells on Christmas Day

Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

And thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along
The unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

Till, ringing, singing on its way,
The world revolved from night to day,
A voice, a chime
A chant sublime
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

Then from each black accursed mouth
The cannon thundered in the South,
And with the sound
The carols drowned
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

It was as if an earthquake rent
The hearth-stones of a continent,
And made forlorn
The households born
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

And in despair I bowed my head;
"There is no peace on earth," I said;
"For hate is strong,
And mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!"

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep: 
"God is not dead; nor doth he sleep!
The Wrong shall fail,
The Right prevail,
With peace on earth, good-will to men!"


- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The times in which we are living are wicked. Just last week there was a shooting at a school in Connecticut, and last night two police officers were killed in my hometown. It is sad to see the "peace on earth-good will to men" slipping away (not that it was here completely since the fall of man)!

The second part of Jeremiah 6:14 and 8:11 says:
"Peace, peace; when there is no peace." 

How true this is!
Someday (soon Lord willing), Jesus will return and there will finally be peace!
For now, we must make ourselves ready for that day.
