IqraSense: Do you actively look out to help others? - The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: "Whoever fulfills the needs of his brother, God will fulfill his needs. Whoever eases his brother's difficulty, God will ease his difficulty in this life and on the Day of Resurrection." (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 3, Hadith 622)

"Dona Nobis Pacem" , 'Grant Us Peace' !

 Hello everyone Thank You so much for coming by today. I signed up for this blogblast on the 19th of Oct after being invited by Mimi Lenox , the great woman that started this 7 years ago.
I am always trying to promote Peace and hoping to add a little Peace to the world every day .
As it turns out, peace has as many definitions as it does emotions and images.
Peace, as defined by the
Merriam-Webster dictionary:
1. a state of tranquility or quiet
2. freedom from disquieting or oppressive thoughts or emotions
3. harmony in personal relations
4. a state or period of mutual concord between governments; a pact or agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity
5. used interjectional to ask for silence or calm or as a greeting or farewell {which I do daily}
 I decided to add some important quotes to me and hope they touch your heart too. 


We must come to see that peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek,
but a means by which we arrive at that goal.
We must pursue peaceful ends through peaceful means. –Martin Luther King, Jr.

When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace. –Jimi Hendrix

Peace is not the absence of war; it is a virtue; a state of mind; a disposition for benevolence; confidence; and justice. –Baruch Spinoza

The practice of peace and reconciliation is one of the most vital and artistic of human actions. –Thich Nhat Hanh

One is left with the horrible feeling now that war settles nothing;
that to win a war is as disastrous as to lose one. –Agatha Christie

You can’t shake hands with a clenched fist. –Indira GandhiRead

 Now for a poem a friend shared with me I just added pictures


Imagine that the whole world belongs to you.


The birch trees in New Hampshire's White Mountains are yours,

These Birch trees are copyrighted & made with pressed plant materials by Jacki Harrington . She is the Vice President of WWPFG.org

and so are the cirrus clouds in the western sky at dusk 

and the black sand on the beaches of Hawaii's big island.


You own everything, my dear sovereign - the paintings in all the museums of the world, as well as the internet 


 And the Wild horses...
Copyrighted and made by Rebekah Smith ,the President of WWPFG .org  This Horse was done with all pressed plant materials 


 


And the roads. 



Please take good care of it all, OK? 
Be an enlightened monarch who treats your domain with reverent responsibility. 



And make sure you also enjoy the full measure of fun that comes with such mastery. 

Glide through life as if all of creation is yearning to honor and entertain you.

 Wishing You a blessed Peaceful day. Now go back to Mimi's link above and see what she is doing for Peace today.
And Dawn asks, "Is this the world you want?"
