Creation Will Be At Peace – “a child shall lead them.”

There is a wonderful anthem “Creation Will Be At Peace” based upon Holy Scriptures in Revelation. The line “a Child shall lead them” has touched me. My interpretation is that in childlike faith and prayer, we as humans can live at peace. Further thinking about other stories in the Bible, I have reflected on Samuel hearing the voice in the night
and being admonished by Eli that it was God speaking to the boy, I have made this sketch of a modern day, american boy named Sam.

John was injured in a farming accident. He suddenly lost both his legs and spent several weeks in the hospital. Toward the end of his stay at the hospital the nurse rolled his bed out into the hospital garden. While there a blue jay landed on his hand as he slept. The bird continued to visit John each day as he arrived in the garden. Perched on John’s hand the bird provided comfort. I am reminded of Matthew 6:26. God’s promise to provide for each of us.
