A mother’s love endures through all.

A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in its vicinity freshen into smiles.

Pippi's Poetry

We all need a Savior

In the flesh hearts grow weak

But God is our strength

He’s the anchor that we preach.

We’ve all grasped for hope

Holding on by a thread

We’re held in His arms

Fed in the desert

And healed by His scars.

Like a tree we have roots

For He’s planted us deep

Hope deferred leaves us longing

But He sees what we need

So we grow like a tree

As we stay in The Vine

Planted by the water

Until it’s our time.

Quote of the Day

Don't Lose Hope

“Soon, when all is going well, you’re going to look back on this period of your life and be glad you never gave up.”

When we’re in the midst of awful, desperate times it can be so easy to lose our motivation.

The struggle can feel endless. Unrelenting. Too ferocious.

And when the war drags on, and doesn’t let up for a moment, it’s understandable that we lose the will to fight.

But when we look back through the years, and we reflect on those dark times – the times when it was hard to see how we could make it through …

We see we did make progress.

And the ground shifted and moved.

For we’re not in the same place.

Something within us really changed.

Do not lose hope. Please believe there are a thousand beautiful things waiting for you.”
