..."and a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the way of holiness; evil minded people shall not travel on it, but it shall be for those wayfarers who are traveling toward God. (Isaiah 35:8, adapted)

Righteousness and Peace Have Kissed

So far as past errors are concerned,
forget them and start afresh, as if
it were your first day in this body;
but so far as your present contacts
are concerned, be kind to them, as
if it were your last day in this body.
-- Paul Brunton

I will hear what God proclaims;
the LORD–for He proclaims peace
To His people, and to His saints,
But let them not turn back to folly.

Surely His salvation is near to
those who fear Him, that glory
may dwell in the our land.

Kindness and truth have met;
righteousness and peace have kissed.
Truth shall spring out of the earth,
and justice shall look down from heaven.

Psalm 85: 8-11
