In the UK, it's a Bank Holiday - an extension of Easter weekend - and for most schools, the last day of their Easter break :(
And before I draw this week's Word, I must say a huge THANK YOU for all of you who stuck with me through my Lenten journey, and left so many lovely, lovely comments over the past 6 weeks! Lent is definitely a deeply personal journey, but it is SO good to know you're not walking it alone - so thank you again x
Once again, I simply cannot believe the synchronicity of the card as I draw it from the pack of Mary Lunnen's Rediscovery Cards...
Is this not the whole message of Easter? Of Spring? Of why we get up in a morning??
It is 'the thing with feathers with feathers' according to Emily Dickinson. It is 'an anchor for the soul, firm and secure' according to Hebrews 6.19.
I am immediately struck by the colour - it's the same as Support which I drew a couple of weeks ago... I understand from Mary that the colours weren't chosen consciously but certainly, for me, Hope and Support definitely go together!!
We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.
Martin Luther King, Jr
I find hope in the darkest of days, and focus in the brightest. I do not judge the universe.
Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not;
remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.
What do you think when you see this small, yet powerful, word? I'd love the know :-)
