Priceless! A very good write.

It's similar to a little boy I knew born in late 1938 in the South. He looked for peas a lot of years also. God was merciful and gave him the time to find it.

"It comes in knowin Jesus personally, not just doin the motions of church goin."

Amen

I could see these women in "fancy hats" and imagine their "shock." -- love that image. :) Your title is great… I really like your message with this quest for peas (peace).

Nicely done! You kept the dialogue absolutely consistent throughout the peace....er....piece. :)
You're so right, so many times the things we go looking for are right there, directly under our nose - be they peas or something else. Great writing, truly enjoyed the voice.
