“Now is a time to find Jesus, hope, cultivate faith, groan for redemption, wait, and carry light and color into dark. Because there will be a time when you will no longer be standing at the window, searching, feet on the heater grate, heart groaning out of the weight of winter. You will be outside, with your face to the sky, arms raised to the Son. Your mouth will be filled with laughter, and your heartbeat will rise like a drumbeat to match your king’s. You will sing in rhythm with his heartbeat: The Lord has done great things for us, and we are glad. And you will dance in the light and life of spring.” Christine Hoover 🌱🌱🌱
I woke up wondering if we will even have a spring. Big cancellations, bigger disappointments, general weirdness all around. No one is where they thought they’d be. 🌱Yesterday we read in Philippians about being content regardless of circumstances. Paul learned that. He wrote that from prison. He fixed his mind on what was good. Of course spring will come, nothing can stop it. 🌱So for now we enjoy the little things – a clean garage, a stockpile of Dr. Pepper, cooking actual meals, preparing for school at home. It’s not the vacation we planned, but who knows, it might be just what we needed. 🌱
And it may bring us to something better.
