PEACEMAKERS

Here’s to the peacemakers, who don’t just smooth things over or try to pretend that wrong things are okay.
Instead, they speak truth, call people to a higher place, negotiate compromise that works, often standing up for vulnerable ones.
They bring reconciliation among people who have not been able to resolve differences on their own.
They are healers.

Peacemakers can be found in homes, schools, workplaces, hospitals and any other location where there are people.
They are domestic and international; sometimes visible and well known; other times, anonymous.
Their tools are courage, wisdom, patience and gracious ways.
All blessing be upon them.

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
