Prisoner of Hope

As these pink azaleas begin to bloom I find myself a prisoner of hope.  They remind me that spring comes each year and therefore they will continue to don their blossoms... the violets as well... the dogwood too. Yes there may be many changes in the world that we are finding hard to accept.  Still there is comfort to be found in what remains the same - such as these three signs that spring has arrived. Keep the fires of Hope burning this week.  Hugs! Debbie "Return to your fortress O prisoners of hope; even now I announce that I will restore twice as much to you."  Zechariah 9:12 (niv) 

I am convinced...

Flowering Quince that there is beauty to be found everywhere... Daffodils, Tulips, Virginia Bluebells spring flowers still lighten our hearts... April 18th page from my sketch journal keeping a gratitude list does much to raise spirits... Watercolor in Progress creating can transport us above our circumstances... Schindler and last but not least the concerns of tomorrow will rob us from the joy and love we have today.  May all of you have a blessed week. Hugs Debbie "For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, no any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."   Romans 8:38-39 (NIV)

Resurrection Sunday

Tomorrow will be Resurrection Sunday - Easter - A time of Hope - Faith - Love.  As Jesus rose from the tomb over two thousand years ago - we too will rise out of the grave of despair and sorrow if we keep in step with the Spirit. A brighter day is coming - let us hold onto that hope and keep faith and know God's love never fails. Stay well my dear friends - prayers for each of you are being sent upward. I will leave you with one of my favorite worship songs - hope you  enjoy it as well.  Done by Stephen McLeod. Jesus said to her, (Martha) "I am the resurrection and the life.   He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die."  Do you believe this?"  John 11:25-26 (NIV) Hugs Debbie


 May you Keep "Looking Up" friends - Keep the Faith  and Keep Safe! Hugs Debbie "Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see."  Hebrews 11:1 (NIV)
