Remember how Pat Costigan has an entire exhibit of paintings dedicated to hope? Well, take a look at this one and then enjoy her artist’s statement:

Many of the respondents to the question “What gives you Hope” gave this answer:

† “Nature gives me hope.”

Today’s journal page comes to us from Maureen Phillips. She says:†My life and hope for the future is focused on my faith in Christ.†† In recent years, it has become clearer to me that my hope only grows through the joys and disappointments that come my way.† I am certain that the love Jesus has for me is perfect, so when my life isnít I rest in knowing that His plans for me are good.†My husband and I will be celebrating 20 years of marriage in April and we have have two beautiful children.† Our daughter is 18 and our son is 14.† Our favorite pastime is camping.† We love to get away with friends and family and just enjoy nature.†To download, just click here.
