I CHOOSE PEACE

Thousands March for peace in Ghana

Thousands March for peace in Ghana

If you slap me and I turn the other cheek rather than retaliate; I choose peace.
If you speak ill of me and rather than confront you I walk away; I choose peace.
If you curse me and I bless you instead; I choose peace.
If you break me and I pick up the pieces and rebuild; I choose peace.
As the saying goes you can break my skin but not my spirit.
Everything I do; I do by choice.

Peace or war is a matter of choice.
I choose peace for myself and the generations yet unborn.
A week to the crucial December 7th Ghana general elections and I pledge to be an instrument of peace rather than hate or war.

I have just one home.
Though I have been all around the world, Ghana is where I call home.
And if I desire anything this Christmas, it is the gift of peace.

Let’s give peace a chance in Ghana; Let’s choose peace.

May the peace of God that passes all understanding be with Ghana and all who dwell in her now and forever.

    Saying Hello From Washington DC!!! I just wanted to say WOW!!! Very powerful words of Peace!!! I love it and Read it and Read it again. You thought of this thru your heart and it will be delivered. You own it now. “Peace”

    I leave you with this: Disappointment should never be a discouragement. Lord, I will look for the good in every event of my life and use each to prepare me for greater things to come.
