Signs of Hope

by | Mar 22, 2014 | Sabbath, Weekend


Spring arrives with the reminder of Hope unfurling on her fingertips. The promise of resurrection hidden underneath leaf litter now opens her palms with a gift.  As you embark upon quiet surrender during Sabbath, may you remember that he hasn’t forgotten your dreams during spiritual winter. He strengthens tender places in silence in order to surprise you with a new season of beauty. A flourishing life requires a sturdy root system.

Redemption rarely looks like we envision, it’s often better.

Happy Sabbath Friends!
