In Blessed Peace

“I came so that you may have life, and live it more abundantly.”

~John 10:10

Friends, I hope your week has been a wonderful one. While pain and fatigue have left me mostly home bound, this is the happiest I have been in a very long time. I think spring’s spectacular arrival, and what it means, have played a role in this newfound joy. My mind has been consumed with ideas~ones of hope, success and abundance; it blissfully wanders between blessings and dreams and all the other things I have struggled to focus on at my darkest times.

Today I will revel in this miracle, this truth: that purpose and possibility always win, despite the gravity of my health challenges.

Wishing you a fun, loving, blessed Easter.

And peaceful weekend.
