My Peace I Give You

It's been almost a week since the terrible shooting in Tucson. Then came all the talk and outrage, flowers and memorial services. So much grief to hold. For many, the grieving won't sink in for days, maybe weeks, and then. 

Burying a daughter, not yet ten, I cannot imagine. 

In the midst of tragedy, life continues. Walks, bus stop talks, taking a father to the doctor, writing, snow days, food shopping, work. We still get up and do our lives. 

We must.

And so when I saw the bumper sticker on the snow-splattered car in front of me at the market, my heart lifted. May it lift yours...

Peace I leave with you
My peace I give you
