The dove is the perennial symbol of peace. The Hebrew word for peace is Shalom; however, it means much more than peace. According to Strong’s Concordance, Shalom means completeness, wholeness, health, peace, welfare, safety, soundness, tranquility, prosperity, perfectness, fullness, rest, harmony, the absence of agitation or discord. What a beautiful word; I pray everyone who reads this will have SHALOM in their lives. (This image is composed of several layers of photos: the dove which I photographed in my back yard as well as wild flowers I photographed in the fields behind my home. There are also textures from LivKanon, Deviant Art).
