It lurks everywhere, waiting to be noticed.
A few weeks ago, I was sick in the night and in the morning, I stretched out in my chair under my furry blanket glad for home and rest and glad it was this Saturday and not the one before, when all my family from away were here and we were getting ready to celebrate my teenagers with a party!
I find myself thinking about simple things and little things and the glorious gifts they are to this life. God made this world, just brimming full. Won’t it be wonderful to see how it was really intended, with all hurts and cares and sickness and death and devastation and hunger and hard things gone completely someday??
It is amazingly beautiful now, even in the midst of the bad, let alone THEN!! It makes me rejoice.
Clinging to hope, ever clutching it tightly, provides a firm anchor during the ups and downs we find ourselves in here.
