In the rain and the rainbow

Singing and sleeping

The dew and the grass


In the twinkling of stars

Laughter of children

The smile of age


In the leaves of the trees


The coming dawn


In the music of springtime

Aroma of sweetness

The hidden blush of the bloom


In the beat of a heart

Breath of a hero

The eyes of love

– Gina Valley


I’ve had a rough week.

I’ve been burning the candle at 5 different ends, so I’m thoroughly exhausted.

And, although I’ve had a lot of great things happen professionally lately, our family has been experiencing a season of strife, which weighs heavily on me every day.

Frankly, I’m sick of it.

It’s heavy and it’s hard.  I’m tired of dealing with it, and I can’t see the end.

But, even though I can’t see it, I know the end of this mess will come.

One of my favorite phrases from the Bible is “It came to pass…”  I cling to that.

It came to pass.

It did not come to stay.  It came to pass.

This will pass.  Things will change.  They always do.  Change is built into the fabric that everything is molded out of.

Knowing things will pass and change when everything is coming up roses, unicorns, and lollipops is not that exciting, but, right now that hope that this will pass, will change, helps me get through hard hours.

Hope is an amazing thing.  It’s a Gift.

So thankful for hope!



Do you feel hopeful?  Does the inevitability of change make you feel secure?  What reminds you to have hope?  Shoot me a comment.  I’m looking forward to hearing all about it.

  • What a lovely post. I believe that everyone has been faced with the same thing you are going through. I know I have been there and yes “It will pass”. Just keep the faith! 🙂

  • You are the icon of normalcy for me. What happened to cause this strife?

      Thank you, Steve. I think I tend to be a fairly normal person, too.
      I think everyone goes through difficult seasons. Fortunately, things will change and I look forward to when things are easier to deal with than they are now.
