devotions: war or peace

Dedicated to the children of Syria, many of whom are being cared for in hospitals in Israel.

"How is it possible for men to fight from morning until evening, killing each other, shedding the blood of their fellow-men: and for what object? To gain possession of a part of the earth! ... The highest of created beings fighting to obtain the lowest form of matter, earth! ...

I charge you all that each one of you concentrate all the thoughts of your heart on love and unity. ... Thoughts of war bring destruction to all harmony, well-being, restfulness and content.

Thoughts of love are constructive of brotherhood, peace, friendship and happiness."


~ Bahá'i Writings

devotions: healing



This week's devotion is dedicated to my sister who is recovering from brain surgery and a dear friend who is recovering from a stroke - both of which took place this past week.

"Thy name is my healing, O my God, and remembrance of Thee is my remedy. 
Nearness to Thee is my hope, and love for Thee is my companion.
Thy mercy to me is my healing and my succor in both this world and the world to come.
Thou, verily, art the All-Bountiful, the All-Knowing, the All-Wise."

~ Bahá'u'lláh
