Sunday Reflection: Do not lose heart!
Sometimes peace is hard to find, but God gives us hope in various ways. The hugs of a child. The sun shining. Love from supportive friends and family. Spring is one of those hopes for me, a sign that there is a better tomorrow. When I see flowers pushing through the earth, I see spring pushing out the cold, gray winter. How can I not feel hopeful?
As I write this, the Ukraine citizens are in the middle of a nightmare that they don't want to experience. Evil does this to others. Bullies do this to others. Please join me in praying that their winter will soon be pushed out by spring.
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” - Jesus (John 16:33)
May God bless you always!
