because peace happened when the juice tipped over and flowed off the edge of the table and splashed half of the legs under the table and there was only one gasp but no condemnation, no tears, no teaching-moments or frustration; just peace that got 2 people out of their seats to get towels and wipe up the mess, refill the juice, and sit back down to carry on with dinner.

and this peace is miraculous and the realization of long awaited hope.

let love and faithfulness never leave you. bind them around your neck write them on the tablet of your heart
