4/16/21 ~ Hope Springs Eternal



“Hope springs eternal in the human breast; man never is, but always to be blest; The soul, uneasy and confin’d from home, Rests and expatiates in a life to come.”  - Alexander Pope

I am ever hopeful that the future will be better than the past.  That my fellow man will do the right thing.  But, then I turn on the news and there is another shooting, another death and I am brought to tears.  I am ever hopeful that God has a plan and that somehow there has to be something good come out of all the mess that the world is in right now.  Although, I am not sure what that is. 

I have to trust that God has a plan, just like Louie trusts that I have in my hand a peppermint after I unwrap one.  He is trusting and hopeful that I have his best interests at heart.  There is no way that I would trick him with an apple and not the most loved peppermint!

I have to hope that there is a greater plan in place for us, that we can turn this corner together and like Louie hopes, there is a peppermint in that wrapper instead of an apple.

Heavenly Father,

I pray that you comfort those that have lost loved ones in the recent shootings, lend skill to the hands to the doctors that are so needed at this time and give us faith that you will show us the way out of this time that we are in.  Amen
