Peace family, all summer long, we are so excited to have our Peace 107 Peace Pals on Tuesday mornings from 8 to 9!
This week’s Peace Pal, 6-year-old Lydia from College Station, was a wonderful friend to have in the studio! She told us about an upcoming family trip to Sky Ranch and how much fun she had last year, the triumphs and challenges of living with loose teeth, her love of swimming and Chip and Joanna Gaines, and some great craft ideas from the Vacation Bible School where she’s going.
We really enjoyed having Lydia as our special guest! We can’t wait for our next Peace Pal, next Tuesday on Peace 107!
Peace Pals are brought to you by Wells Counseling Services.
“I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the Lord.” —Psalm 40:1-3
“For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ.” —Galatians 1:10

Peace family, no matter how hard anything else is in our lives, there are always small, beautiful things to look out for and celebrate!
This week, after a year of waiting, my neighbor Cynthia and I celebrated the ripening of a peach on her peach tree. Now, this is a very special peach tree. It has the best peaches I’ve ever tasted. The peaches are light-colored, with a hint of blush, and the extremely soft, almost ice cream-like flesh has the perfect balance of sweet and tart.
Ever since last summer, I’ve been thinking about the wonderful peaches on Cynthia’s tree, and looking forward to them. Unfortunately, with the spring we had that went back and forth between cold and warm weather several times, in the seasonal confusion, the tree ended up making only one single peach this year. However, Cynthia protected it, and once it was ripe, invited me over to enjoy it with her. I baked a coconut cream pound cake, she cut the peach in half, and we celebrated, eating it as slowly as possible! It was just as delicious as I remember, and I am really looking forward to more peaches next year!
I know that sounds like a lot of pomp for a simple peach, but peace family, it was one of the highlights of my year so far! I know God enjoys it when we thank him and enjoy the simple things he has made. Not only that, but it feels good to celebrate! Philippians 4:9 says, “ Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” I think that focusing on the good makes a world of difference, especially when we might be having a hard time in other areas of our lives!
What small thing (or things) can you celebrate today? How about this weekend? Even if it’s something small, celebrate! The lives we have are truly full of beautiful, noble, and wonderful things!
