Peace On Earth


We keep our Christmas decorating pretty simple in our home - a tree, some lights, a few handmade ornaments and a wreath are usually all we use. I felt like we needed a little bit more this year, something to remind us of Christ and His message. This bunting banner is what I came up with. The message is simple, one for the whole world, even those who aren't Christian.


I made it from scraps of fabric from my stash that originally came from the thrift store. The white fabric is a recycled Irish linen table cloth, the background fabric is a pair of green linen pants. I used iron on paper for the lettering, sewed the pieces together with thrifted red thread, and attached it all together with some twill tape.


Wishing you all Peace in your lives.

Peace on Earth???

Aren’t humans amazing Animals? They kill wildlife - birds, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice and foxes by the million in order to protect their domestic animals and their feed.

Then they kill domestic animals by the billion and eat them. This in turn kills people by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative - and fatal - - health conditions like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and cancer.

So then humans spend billions of dollars torturing and killing millions of more animals to look for cures for these diseases.

Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals.

Meanwhile, few people recognize the absurdity of humans, who kill so easily and violently, and once a year send out cards praying for "Peace on Earth."
