Hope Ends…

Know that saying ‘all good things must come to an end’? Like a really good book, wonderful day, reliable product, good paying job, cherished life. There will be many happy endings in this life, and many soul draining ones as well. I miss my…

Hope Grows…

Ever go to bed one night thinking: ‘I can do this’, and wake up the next morning doubting…everything? Those mornings when what you least expected was a melt down – but there you are right in the middle of it? And all I could…

Hope Happens…

Any given day the headlines are scary reading – suicide, shooting, missing. And hope seems lost. And yet…the widow clings, the terrified students grasp, the mother and father print posters. It’s a soul thing – we know hope is real. We know, but how?…

I forgot – again. Forgot that I’m not alone. Forgot that fear is an enemy. Forgot that now isn’t all there is. But this is what God tells me, tells you: “And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the…

Returns…

Christmas is behind, boxes of decorations will soon be put away, and store music is already back to usual. Is life? We mark time because we are currently captive to it. The difference between December 31st and January 1st is really a calendar year….

Just A Little Bit…
