Your Children's Peace. . .

Written By Esthermay Bentley-Goossen on 03 December 2008

"To me this is like the days of Noah, when I swore that the waters of Noah would never again cover the earth. So now I have sworn not to be angry with you, never to rebuke you again. Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed," says the LORD, who has compassion on you.
". . . All your sons will be taught by the LORD, and great will be your children's peace."
~ Isaiah 54:9-10, 13

Perfectly matched Scripture and photo. They do both look peacful. Our Dept. 56village has to be tacked down when grandkids come and the little pieces still end up in the toy room. Good luck!

You do have beautiful children.
