And Isaiah’s word:
There’s the root of our ancestor Jesse,
breaking through the earth and growing tree tall,
Tall enough for everyone everywhere to see and take hope!
Oh! May the God of green hope fill you up with joy,
fill you up with peace,
so that your believing lives,
filled with the life-giving energy of the Holy Spirit,
will brim over with hope!
Martha Orlando says
May your Sunday be blessed as you have blessed ours today!
Plunging into the green beauty
Diane BAiley says
The longer I live the more I realize why hope is one of the things that will remain. It is filled with mighty strength and power.
I think I hear a sacred echo in your words here today 🙂
JoAnne Potter says
This is the day to remember that the God of hope is not needed when everything is well with the world, when all is smooth and sweet. It is meant, in other words, for today. Thank you.
Sheila Seiler Lagrand says
Hmm. I just came from Patricia’s, where she and her dragonfly are illuminating Romans 15:13.
And you too. Hope. I need me some hope on this Monday morning. Thankful for my God of hope, and thankful for my friends who point me there.
Bless you, Sandy.
Sharon O says
Don’t we all need a dose of hope these days?
Joanne Norton says
I like hope and peace. They are certainly good God-things. And your photo and Word combinations are loverly as usual.
