Dona Nobis Pacem

BlogBlast For Peace

There will be no Wordless Wednesday today. Sorry. Check back next week.

I was going to write some other stuff. I was mad, pissed off even. People have a lot of nerve and just don't think about what they are saying. Yes, you know who you are jerkasses...

But, peace seemed like a much better subject.

On Eve's blog, she wrote that peace begins at home. When you can achieve peace in your own family, you can then begin to achieve peace on Earth.

I haven't got much peace right now in my own life. I am sort of in limbo. I have 27 days to move out of my apartment. I don't want to stay where I am because it's too expensive and this job is going no where fast. I have been job hunting for months with very little to show for it... A few phone calls, an interview, some e-mails... but no job. I believe in karma and know that eventually I will find what I am looking for. But until I do, I am a wreck. I am not sleeping. I am barely eating. I argue with everyone.

This morning, my Grandpa got into a car accident. Luckily, he is okay. His car will never see another stop sign, but he is going to be fine. I don't think he'll drive again. It's okay, he has people who care and will drive him where ever he needs to go. He has good karma.

My sister is going to Hawaii. She and her husband are supposed to be there by July 6. She is so excited. My sister always has good things going for her. She makes me want to hit her sometimes, but I don't since she is my sister and decking your sister would be very bad karma, no matter what you think of her. No very peace loving either.

Today, is Wednesday, June 4, 2008. Good things will happen today. There is peace out there. Check out the other peace bloggers today at the Blogblast for Peace (Link at top).



  1. I hope you find a peaceful world with lots of Tropical Fruit in your lifetime, I would love to see the same in my lifetime, they better hurry up....

  2. Your peace globe is beautiful. I'm sorry about your Grandpa was in an accident but I'm glad he's ok. Peace, Carver

  3. I'm on the same boat with looking for a new job. The market is just not good. I'm blessed that I have some job now and am able to make my living. It will soon turn around. Cheer up! :o)
    Have a very peaceful day and let love rule! :o)

  4. Lovely Peace Globe today! I love seeing what everyone's sharing.

    Sorry to learn of your problems, and I hope everything works out for your and yours over the next few days, weeks, and months.

    I took this week off from WW to share different Peace Globes and Blog Blasts on each of my blogs today and hope you’ll find time to drop by.
    Hugs and blessings,

  5. May peace find you my friend. I'm pleased to hear your grandpa is OK. :)

  6. I'm sorry you are having a rough time! I'm sending good thoughts and hugs your way today!

    How scarey about your grandpa, I'm glad he's okay though.

  7. No need for all of you to be sorry... I want all of you to be happy my Grandpa is okay and hopeful that my new life will show up soon.

    Thanks all of you who have been by so far today. Peace is coming. Faster with every visit and every comment!

  8. Well I would say that Eve is a very wise woman. Sometimes Peace and harmony are not the same thing, or even close. Sometimes just staying away from negative and unhappy people will bring you peace, without the harmony and that is ok.
    Grandpa is ok he is going to be a little achey for a couple of days. He was shook up but he is ok. The car is pretty much a goner but that's ok it was just a car.
    You are going to find a job and the way I look at it is in 27 days you will be out of that little apartment and in Apple Valley, I know lots of people in employment services that are looking out for leads. You may not have your dream job right away but the right job will come along.

  9. Great to see you on board and what a nice Globe!
    Mine is up too :-)
    Hello from Norway - peace to you and yours!

  10. That's what I want to see... optimism!

  11. So glad your Grandpa is okay. I know how you feel about things working out for your sister - I've had that happen to me, and I love my sister, too. But it'll be nice when your turn comes, won't it? Savour it when it does.

    Peace to you on this hopeful day.

  12. I hope things turn around for you soon. Peace to you and yours. :)

  13. I love that word...jerkass! May I borrow it? It applies to a few people I know.

    I am glad your grandpa is ok... peace and love to you and your family.

  14. Shannon... feel free to call anyone a jerkass you feel you need to. Hopefully it will bring peace!

  15. Sometimes it's hard to find time to write about peace, with so much going on. We're glad that so many took the time to do so today.

    And glad to hear that your Grandpa is ok.

  16. good karma from all over for you today I hope it works for you and grandpa, he could use a little good karma today too.

  17. I know... I am getting good wishes from people all over the world. Some old friends... some new ones... and plenty of peace and love. Can't beat that!

  18. Wonderful post. That you have a sense of humor about your stress says to me you will find the perfect job and the perfect home and even inner peace. And hopefully the world will find outer peace. Good luck with everything. Peace.

  19. I know sometimes we can get in a rut where it looks like bad stuff is just our lot. But it does turn around.

    Glad your grandpa wasn't injured.

    Be positive if you can. Good stuff is right around the corner.

    Peace to you and yours!

  20. Thank you for your comment on my blog, peace to you and yours.

  21. Yes, there is certainly peace out today.

    Thank you for blogging for peace today!
