One's Hope


I've been contemplating the term- Putting one's hope in the Lord. That phrase I know is used alot in the Psalms and I was thinking about how to do that. I found a good picture of what it looks like- Caden's hand in his dad's hands :) and this helped me think what do I hope for in the future

- vacations :),
-desserts!,
-relaxing weekends,
-good days.
Thoughts that give me a sense of hope are things I desire. Then I started to think about what God says about me and what HE desires for ME
-good plans
-give me a future
-purpose
-life
-prosper
Thinking about these does give me hope! and I need to learn to desire them more

I LOVE that picture! And those are some great thoughts...

You know what else was a great thought? Your thought about coffee... But maybe we should go visit Noel on our next coffee excursion! :)
