Last week, when we studied from "come follow me," we read the Beattitudes. We spent some time discussing what it means and looks like to be a peacemaker. As we were talking, we all thought of little Brinna. She brings so much peace into our home with her smile and her sweetness.

Not too long after our discussion, I was folding laundry and Layla was feeling upset about something I told her to do or she couldn't do (I don't remember which one). She buried her face into her blanket and her knees and started crying. Within seconds, Brinna stopped playing with her toys and toddled over to Layla. She announced "sad" and gave Layla a series of hugs, kisses, and rubs on the head until her big sister calmed down.

“Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.”
