Happy *PEACE filled New Year

With the torrential non stop rain comes the frogs....
And their continuous song. 

The children love them especially these green tree ones.

Happiness is, caring and sharing.
Grandchildren, Shiarn to Izaiah.

This Mr Froggy is displaying the Sign of PEACE..

The world does not have peace, although it's what EVERY person desires.

But knowing Jesus can give peace to the heart in troubled times as we place our faith and trust in Him.

Jesus tells us in His Word:
"Peace I leave with you;
My peace I give you.
I do not give to you as the world gives.
Do not let your hearts be troubled
and do not be afraid." (John 14:27)

To keep immersed in Gods Word, feeds and water's the parched soul.

There should be no divisions between different Christian faiths.
No Hostility...
There should be Peace!!

"For Christ himself has brought peace to us.
He united Jews and Gentiles into one people when,
In his own body on the cross,
He broke down the wall of hostility that separated us."
Ephesians 2:14
PEACE... what a beautiful word...
Jesus died to unite us in Himself...
And yet He still knew the wicked heart of man..
Jesus Said....
“Brother will betray brother to death,
and a father his child;
children will rebel against their parents and have them put to death. 
You will be hated by everyone because of me,
but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved." 
Matthew 10:21-22
Peace, keep the Peace!!
Don't argue,.. Pray!
Forgive and Love.


  1. And Peace Be With You Too.
    Love the pics

  2. Great reminder sister as we head into another year. Great pics and that's neat that your grandkids are loving that green creature :) Happy New Year and God bless.

  3. Oh I love that frog sitting on your grandchild's head!
    Yes we all desire peace and that is found in Jesus the Christ, if only people weren't so self centered then maybe many more would see the freedom in the the peace Jesus gives.

    God bless you,

  5. Hi Crystal...isn't that a huge frog! I have just finished reading "God's Smuggler' and have really enjoyed it again! Brother Andrew is a great example of a man who listens to God, love it.

    Peace, peace, God's sweet Peace. There is nothing else like it...or Him.

    Buckets of blessings to you and your family!

  8. You are so right we all want peace, but don't realize what part we have to play in that peace. I so enjoyed those pictures with the frog, made me smile. That brings peace to me, thanks to your words and pictures. Happy New Year to you and family.

  9. This world (and the people in it) certainly need peace. I enjoyed the pictures of your grandchildren.
    Thanks for visiting my site.

  10. Love, love, love this message you've shared! I am in complete agreement that their should be absolutely no separation or quarreling among bible believing followers of Jesus Christ, the son of God.

    God bless you.

  11. It's been raining cats and dogs here too, but thankfully no frogs in sight. We do have the Peace that passes understanding in our house though - and so grateful for it. Happy New Year.

  12. I love these photos along with the picture of the frog! And also I thank you so very much for sharing God's Word with me! Also I really like what you put towards the end of this post about being still and peace! When my mother was in her death bed waiting to go home with our Lord Jesus she could not hardly move a muscle, and this was one of her favorite verses . . .

    "The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still." Exodus 14: 14 (NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION)

    God's Blessings to you and your beautiful family, and I hope you all have a very Blessed New Year!!!


  13. Crystal, I just love those pictures of your grandchildren. Thank you so much for writing this message on God's peace that all needs to read and hear. Our Lord's peace and joy is not like the "worlds" peace and joy. Ours is knowing that we have an intimate relationship with God because Jesus died on the cross for us. Blessings my sister in Christ.

  14. Dear Crystal,

    I hope all is well with you and your family. I just received an emergency prayer alert to pray for the people of Australia who are in flood zones. May the Lord surround you, lift you and carry you. Blessings on you, my friend.

  15. Dear Crystal Mary,

    Your words are very touching... i am glad to have read those words... i wish you and yours all the best luck in this year of the rabbit... Happy New Year!!!;)

    God Bless!!!;)
