18. still here.

I don’t have a lot of words in my head tonight.  For the third night in a row I’m writing this post and publishing it on the last hour of the day.  We have been so busy, so I’ve had no time to think about this 31 Days of Hope.  My organized list of posts has gone by the way side, and I can’t remember the things I wanted to say. 


But as I look back over the last week in my family I see a thread of hope in the days.  I see things that can only be attributed to God’s hand here and I know He is here and I know there is hope.  And if I wasn’t doing this 31 Days of Hope journey, this paying attention to hope, I don’t think I’d be noticing those things.  I don’t think I’d see the hope we have.  I don’t think I would even notice how much our God has done for us.  His goodness in a bad time.  His goodness in a bad year.  And I am reminded that my only hope is in Jesus.

Hope in the life of our active two year old.  Hope in the blessing of our precious Gabriel. 




hope family  

Hope in the extra time with family as we get through a hard time. 




hope fun  

Hope in the joy a little one brings to a somber home. 



Do you notice hope in your life?  Have you noticed or thought about hope in new ways?  I’d love to hear about it.
