green hope

More beautiful thoughts from Christie are posted over here today. I took this picture of her daughter, Lily, on a green Spring day we spent exploring the Virginia countryside. Oh how I love Spring.
Springs reminds me that miracles are possible. Spring is hopeful.
In her blog, Christie talks of Spring in the dead of Winter. She named her summer-born daughter for it. I read and I open my eyes and I look around. I look deeper. And I see miracles, I know hope. Reading books, baking bread, asking questions, raking dead leaves, weeping sorrow, feeding babies -every moment of life is saturated and dripping with the green hope of a living Savior. He is risen and I want to live a believing life.

"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!"
Romans 15:13, The Message
