Mother Earthand#8217;s Peace Song follows and was channeled to Janis by her angels and guides; the words came in to her in about 1984. The music followed, perhaps in 1985:

Letand#8217;s each and every person make a commitment to peace; then there will be no need

for war, and the fighting will cease, on this small planet that we all share.

Letand#8217;s each and every one of us purify our hearts; the Universal Soul will heal and the harmony will start, on this small planet that we all share.

Letand#8217;s relate from Higher Consciousness, talking Soul to Soul.

Lay aside our egos, personalities and attachment, on this small planet that we all share.

Letand#8217;s each and every person make a commitment to peace, then there will be no need

for war, and the fighting will cease, on this small planet that we all share.

Since we all sit at Godand#8217;s Common Hearth.

By Emmet Fox. Emmet was a world famous Christian theologian who worked between 1928 and 1948. Janis believes from the bottom of her heart that every word is perfectly placed and true. Google his name and you will understand:

There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer.

There is no disease that enough love will not heal.

There is no door that enough love will not open.

There is no gulf that enough love will not bridge.

There is no wall that enough love will not throw down.

There is no error in ways that enough love will not redeem.

It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble,

how hopeless the outlook, how muddled the tangle, how great the mistake.

A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all. If only we could love enough we would be the happiest and most powerful Souls in this galaxy.

and#8212; Janis Kathleen Day, AKA Grandma Janis, holds High Vibration meetings weekly and Planetary Activation Groups the last Friday night of the month. All groups meet at 7:30 p.m. She may be reached at 530-448-3537.
