Awakening a Keen Observer

Monday, February 05, 2007


We hear this word often it seems. I don't know how much we apply it as a rule of faith or as a, well, Big-Maybe. What I am trying to say is that if we really hope then we place outside of ourselves the control of the world. And, well, if you haven't figured this out before now, we aren't really in control after all. Well, sometimes we wish maybe we were. Maybe we could make things happen that would make our lives easier. Maybe we could change the weather so it wouldn't rain n a friends wedding. Again, I hope--place outside myself--that you don't think you can control such things.

We hope and then rest back in the sure and certain knowledge of God's love for us. We hope and then we rest back in the sure and certain knowledge that we make the choices that are before us as God's love leads us.

Our hope is built on nothing less.. that God's love for the world...and that is true solid ground.

God abide
