Where there is life, there is hope.

I know many of my readers are snow bound, tired of this winter, some struggling with personal things...loss, hurt, fear, uncertainty and more.  This post then is for you.  

“While there's life, there's hope.” 

--Marcus Tullius Cicero

Is that a hint of color amidst the fallen oak leaves I spy?
Ecclesiastes 3:1
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

Daffodils planted last fall, a gift from my Mom.
1Cor. 13:4-8a
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  Love never fails.
Even in the midst of winter, this bush will always blossom.


  1. No sign of daffodils here! Course I didn't plant any ;-) I do, however, have tulips and crocuses that I look forward to seeing in a couple of months.

  2. From what I see on the forecast, any sprouting will be a long time coming... but it will come. Happy you are seeing some changes in your area. :)

  3. Beautiful photos and inspiration. Thank you from us all. Hug B

  4. I used to think it would be a lark to have snow here (SE Georgia), but after seeing what others are going through up North and in the Midwest, they can keep it. :)

    It's true, while there's life, there's hope (real hope, not the Hopey Changey lie). I forget that too sometimes. Thank you for the reminder of our Lord's mercy.

    Have a blessed day. ~:)

  5. Beautiful, both your photos and the verse. Prayers coming your way for your family.


I blog for myself, my family and friends, and of course the Hounds! I love to read your comments, and I always read them all.

But if you are here just to shill your own product, or are a spammer, don't waste your time or mine.
