Bella and Grace by Stampington As we get older, we often forget to play and have fun, which is why we should be making more of an effort at it. What brought you immense joy as a child? How can you bring that into your adult life? Melinda
A mother’s love endures through all.

Thank you Tina for your post today The first line (in fact the whole poem) brings to mind a well known chorus in The Salvation Army called ” We’re All seeking the same Saviour”. I hope you enjoy listening to it. https://youtu.be/kZ8gzR2XxQI

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

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.”
