Peace Peace Wonderful Peace

Far away in the depths of my spirit tonight
Rolls a melody sweeter than psalm;
In celestial strains it unceasingly falls
O’er my soul like an infinite calm.

Peace, peace, wonderful peace,
Coming down from the Father above!
Sweep over my spirit forever, I pray
In fathomless billows of love!

What a treasure I have in this wonderful peace,
Buried deep in the heart of my soul,
So secure that no power can mine it away,
While the years of eternity roll!

Warren Cornell and George Cooper, 1889

We saw Vestal live at a very large auditorium in Des Moines. It was pitch dark and she sang about two to three words and the entire place stood to their feet. It was her first concert since she had lost her husband. She was so wonderful to hear.

Hello Karen, I am so thankful for His peace even in the eye of the storm. May we rejoice and let our lights shine for Him!
A young woman from our Church is here visiting from her internship for IHOP. It was so good to see her. I could see and sense God's glory all over her!
Blessings, Roxy
