Amidst the slime and grit of the slave ship, June discovered in painful ways that she’d have to adjust her ‘clean peace’ approach.

“To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.”
Luke 1:79 KJV

Solving my winter blues.

“For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.”
