Robert and I are getting packed to leave for our yearly participation in The Global Peace Convention. You may remember my blog from last year regarding Robert's leaving his suit bag due to our rushing to make the flight to Manila, Philippines (the sight of last years convention!) All turned out well and we are looking forward to speaking at this peace-promoting event again this year. We have also printed out our itineraries and are sure of the departure time! We will remember ALL of our luggage this year too!
World peace is an interesting and a very popular subject but I always remember that peace begins at home. This is what I will address to the many different people from many diverse cultures and religions as I lead a break-out session at the convention. One thing we all have in common is the desire to have our loved-ones live in a peaceful environment. I will address practical ways to create and teach peace within the four walls of the home. Of course as a Christian I will share with them that I try to follow the ways of the Prince of Peace.
"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." John 16:33
I will make sure I get a video to share with you all!
God is blessing you. Donna
