The Peace of God
Saying for the day: May God's Peace fill your life.
There are two roads to peace.
One road requires that we human beings put aside our differences, our old hatreds, our desire to force everybody to be like us, our greed, and all the other things that divide us.
Then we work for the good of all human beings.
At the end of that road there is no starvation, no poverty.
There is health care for everybody.
There is no killing and no war.
There is harmony and real peace.
That’s one road.
The other road is a road of revenge, getting even, and making things right.
On this road people either agree or we kill them.
Some of the people on this road will have most of the good things.
People will starve.
Sickness will run rampant.
There will be war after war.
Finally there will be peace.
It will be the peace of the graveyard.
There will be no humans to ruin the peace.
Which road will we humans go down?
News from Pigeon Falls– The little town in my garage where the trains still run and so does Mrs. Trumble– There was a large turnout to vote today. It looks like most of the people in Pigeon Falls will have voted by the end of the day. People are waiting to see if anybody got written in for Mayor and if so will they take the job. They have to wait until the votes are counted. All written ballots in Pigeon Falls, no machine voting.
Eino really doesn’t know what to think about the Hermit. The FBI says he is alive and well but won’t tell Eino where he lives or how to get a hold of him. If he Goggles the name he finds some guy in Sweden and he is sure that’s not the guy. The guy the FBI talked to said he was the Hermit but just got tired of Pigeon Falls and left. But nobody saw him go. He didn’t go by train and he didn’t have a car. Mystery upon mystery.
Nancy says she gave out a lot of free coffee today but she sold enough saffron buns to break even for the day. She is glad so many people voted and she hopes they get a Mayor.
Karen Single says she is so glad the election is over. Yesterday she got called nine times by recording machines to tell her to vote for certain candidates in various offices. They are getting as bad as Dish Network that calls every day with the same recorded message. Some day she is going to push the right number and pretend to be interested so she can waste as much of their time as they have of hers.
Todays Link:Mimi Writes- Please remember to leave the words Dr. John in the comment to get those peace loving JCPOINTS. Check HERE for your totals. Today's link is to the blog that is responsible for the image that starts my blog today. I thought you might like to see what she says about peace.
Just a reminder to go and vote today. Please be sure to vote for the best candidates.
This morning I wrote a story for Cindra's latest contest but since it must be anonymous I can't tell you about it. I can't even give you a teeny, weenie, little hint. That when I know I am going to be against her relatives any one of whom might have an inside track. But I press on any way.
I do want to thank Cindra Jo for the beautiful ornaments which have arrived ( how else would I know they were beautiful?) They were my prize for the last contest I entered.
I spent the morning finishing up some things for the church secretary. In the afternoon Betty and I went to the bank and closed out an old account. Then to the courthouse where we voted. Then to the postoffice where we mailed the Friday and Monday prizes. Finally we went to the church and gave them the money from the closaed account for the furnace fund. Then we came home and I spent the afternoon working on the mini-marathon. Well I need a breathing treatment.
