In working on a devotional for my ladies Bible study group, I was looking at the word 'peace'. As I was going through different references to peace in Scripture I came across one that I have read many times before but it really hit home with me tonight. It seemed to be talking specifically about Mom and Dad. I don't know what more I can say about it so I'll be quite content to just let the Scripture speak for itself.
Isaiah 57:1-2 (The Message)
Meanwhile, right-living people die and no one gives them a thought.
God-fearing people are carted off
and no one even notices.
The right-living people are out of their misery,
they're finally at rest.
They lived well and with dignity
and now they're finally at peace.
