|There is always beauty and calm to be remembered....even in the midst of turmoil|
What a devastating news week this has been. First the unfathomable downing of the Malaysia Airlines passenger jet which was fired on by a missile, then the escalation of fighting in The Holy Land which has resulted in closing the International airport in Tel Aviv for many inbound and outbound flights. I won't for a minute believe that God caused any of this but I do believe that God has a hand in the healing of the hearts of people. I know that there are many broken bodies but also broken hearts. For all of the families affected by the terrible airline disaster....heal their hearts. For all of the people affected by the continued war in Israel and Palestine, heal their hearts and heal their land.

"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things." Philippians 4:8 NIV
Even though there is pain and destruction all around, try to keep yourself in a peaceful state so that you may pass that peace to others. The world needs it.
