Hope… its one of the strongest emotions I know. I’m hopeful Michael finds a house soon, I’m hopeful the move goes smoothly, I’m hopeful everyone in my family stays well… I’m hopeful my children come home.
But now the LORD says, “Do not weep any longer, for I will reward you. Your children will come back to you from the distant land of the enemy. There is hope for your future,” says the LORD. “Your children will come again to their own land.” Jeremiah 31:16-17
I’m especially hopeful that someday my children will want to know me, that they will no longer be so influenced and controlled by those who have swayed them from me. In recent weeks, I’ve gotten a surprise homemade bar of soap from my daughter’s ETSY store, and also a Mother’s Day card from her. (Did the happy dance around the house!)
So, hope to me, is the strongest emotion…
