Peace


“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.”
 (Matthew 5:9)

(Posted at Weekly Top Shot)

Down by the river,  scribbled on the door of  a deteriorating warehouse,
 is the word "PEACE." 
True, a place that is falling in doesn't look very peaceful, but it sure mirrors
 the destructive forces in life and our hope for PEACE. 

The verse, taken from "The Sermon on the Mount," 
is the seventh beatitude preached by Jesus. When I think of peacemakers,
 I recall Sheriff Andy Taylor in "The Andy Griffith Show."
 The TV sheriff was called upon to make peace time and again, 
reconciling conflicts among the people of Mayberry.  

Below is a clip from Andy's introduction as the sheriff 
of Mayberry on "The Danny Thomas Show."

What an interesting looking old warehouse. Were you able to take additional pictures inside?

The interior looked a bit treacherous, so I didn't go in, just took photos through the openings.

So sad to lose Andy last week. He was one of my childhood heroes.

Lovely capture -- an amazing structure.

Beautiful shot and a wonderful post. Thanks for sharing the video. "But don't the trees seem nice and full?" was my favorite line from that show.

Nancy, he was one of my heroes too. Lois, I remember that line!
