Yesterday was my birthday, my 55th birthday and I asked myself what I wanted in life.  I wasn’t quite sure what to strive for in the next year.  Then I saw this and I realized this is what I aim for.  Without peace, we have nothing. Peace, inner peace is the greatest gift we can have, alongside faith.  Don’t get me wrong, if my artistic stuff does well, and I have great friends, companions along my life journey.  If there is peace, one that comes with repentance, reconciliation with the Creator, then we have the greatest gift of all.  May this be a birthday wish we all have and one that is granted us.

Amen
