At this sad time of general lawlessness and unrest in our country, I pray even more than ever for you to have the peace that passes all understanding reigning in your heart today. My prayers are with all of the people involved and especially those who work so hard to help and protect us. God be with you! 🙏🏻✝️❤️
Violets are another flower listed among those symbolizing peace. This delicate flower also represents love, affection, faith purity, chastity, worth and goodness. The meaning of the violet depends mostly the flower’s color and the person it is given to. Blue violets symbolize love and faithfulness, white represents purity and chastity, and yellow great worth and goodness. I’m not sure which color represents peace, but with all these other attributes I find it fitting that it does! So today I am sending you a virtual bouquet of multicolored violets filled with the aroma of God’s amazing love and peace! 💕🙏🏻😊
Celebrate the Peace…
The Eastern White Pine is known in some cultures as the “Tree of Peace.” It is a beautiful bluish or greenish tree, and this fast-growing foliage can be found throughout North America, especially in Maine and Michigan where they have chosen it as their state tree. Fast growing…what a perfect term to apply to a tree that represents peace. Just as fear and unrest can be contagious and fast growing, wouldn’t it be wonderful if peace could be even more contagious and so fast growing that it spread like wild fire. This is my prayer…for this miraculous peace that passes all understanding to be fast growing in each of our hearts, and in hearts throughout our country and our world. Peace be with you! 🙏🏻✝️❤️🌲
As God’s children we are to be peacemakers. 💐
Lavender is another common flower associated with peace. Lavender is typically used for anxiety, stress and insomnia. It is also thought to bring peace to interactions with loved ones. Ultimately, it symbolizes love, protection, happiness, sleep and devotion, and that all sounds pretty peaceful to me. Don’t you just love the smell of lavender? And today we can thank our God of Peace for creating it for us with all these many benefits!
Basil is a common herb, and it is also a symbol of peace in some cultures. It can symbolize good wishes, wealth and happiness. But more than good wishes, Jesus gives peace that passes all understanding to those who believe and trust in Him. This is the peace I pray for you today. 🙏🏻✝️💕
Just as Apple Blossoms (one of several flowers that symbolize peace) precede the actual fruit, so putting our faith and trust in the Lord precedes the fruit of inner peace.
Just a little extra info today: Poppies traditionally symbolize peace and the end and remembrance of war, and this may have partially come from the fact that the flowers grew over the fallen bodies of soldiers who fought in the Great War in Northern France. Different colors have slightly different symbolism, but the white poppy’s pure, crisp tone is especially indicative of peace.*
With that said, I thought this graphic was perfect for today’s verse… When “the peace that passes all understanding” envelopes our very souls, we stand out in the world as beautifully a white poppy in a field of red ones! I pray this kind of overcoming peace for you today, and that you can take heart! 🙏🏻😌❣️
