Coffee Break

Hello all of you wonderful paper enthusiasts!

Slow Down
Peace I leave you; My [own] peace I now give 
and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do
I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled,
neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves
to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit
yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and
cowardly and unsettled.]
                                JOHN 14:27
