“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.” ~Romans 15:13
As I write this I am feeling hopeful. Usually I just pretend to be hopeful and prepare for the worst. But somehow I’m feeling able to make plans more than a day in advance, I’m going to try traveling further than I’ve traveled since before my third surgery (not driving, though) and I’ve invited strangers into my home in April for a book club meeting. I just joined and have only been to one meeting, and it was in a beautiful home. This pigsty is going to need some serious work before the big day arrives. And some dog training – EEK!
I’m writing again, after a short but scary dry spell, and my car will be fixed early this week so I can put all memories of the wreck behind me (until they raise my insurance rates). Maybe it’s that the weather’s a little warmer, a little sunnier. Maybe it’s the shoots of spring bulbs that are poking through the ground. Whatever it is, I’m just going to be thankful and rejoice in it!
