A Gift For You

My "theme" this holiday season has been one of Peace.  I used this word in the stitchy gifts I gave to friends and family this year and to me that simple word speaks volumes.  I wish that I could send each and every one of you a little something to let you know how much I appreciate your comments, kind thoughts and encouragement.  Since I realize that is impossible I would like to share with you my two little designs in the hopes that you might decide to stitch them up and find a little peace yourself while doing so.

(Click to enlarge, then right click to save to your computer)
Sing along with me, won't you?

Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.
Let there be peace on earth, the peace that was meant to be!
With God as our Father, brothers all are we.
Let me walk with my brother in perfect harmony.

Let peace begin with me. Let this be the moment now.
With ev'ry breath I take, let this be my solemn vow;
To take each moment, and live each moment in peace eternally!
Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me!
~~Lyrics By Sy Miller and Bill Jackson
