Looking Forward with Hope
On the first day of spring, March 20, 2017, I finally removed the pumpkins and gourds that were artfully arranged in the planters outside my front door…Now, I look at the empty planters, and the bare dirt, and anticipate what they may look like this spring and summer. Do I dread what I may see in these planters? No! I look forward with hope.
Words of Hope, Truth and Love!
Words! They are powerful. They are effective. Words can be used for good or not so pleasant intentions. Words convey feelings, beliefs, our character and inner thoughts. Words can encourage or discourage, heal and bring forgiveness or cut deep wounds. Words make a lasting impression – positive or negative
Opportunities to Learn – and Give Thanks!
I am a Minnesota-born girl. I love winter – when the sun is shining and the snow is white. I love my Minnesota cabin – when it is warm and cozy. I love Minnesota snowmobile trails – when they are groomed and smooth. Notice a pattern?
LOVE–What is that again?
My husband and I had been looking forward to this trip overseas for quite some time. We were eager to visit our son’s family as well as the people and country they love. This was my second trip and I couldn’t wait to return.
