peace is possible

My sister shared this little video on Facebook, and I thought it was too beautiful not to share here. The Christmas Truce happened 100 years ago this Christmas Eve. It is a wonderful reminder that we can love each other, despite our backgrounds and our differences. That we can find peace, even in times of great difficulty. For me, that peace comes from faith in my Savior, Jesus Christ. He makes all of those things mentioned in the video, things like change and hope and healing, possible.

Let's love each other a little more this Christmas season.


  1. That gave me goosebumps. Have you seen the movie Joyeux Noel? It's about that Christmas Eve truce (but does have a quick nudity scene - so beware of that). But it was good.

    PS Love your Christmas card a lot.

  2. I came across your blog a few years back and I've enjoyed visiting ever since. I had heard this touching story before. It has been used in a current British Christmas Ad. Both brought me to tears.

  3. There's also a children's book called Christmas in the Trenches by John McCutcheon. Such an amazing story.
