The Hope of Lent - March 4th

If you watch how nature deals with adversity, by continually renewing itself, you can't help but learn.

Bernie Siegel

Plants will grow wherever they can find a small crack of sunlight, a glimmer of hope.  They are a symbol for resilience and perseverance in the face of adversity.

Nothing says hope quite like flowers growing through the cracks in concrete.

When you feel stuck in a winter season in life, hold on to the hope of new change to come . Nature’s beauty can be healing and revealing of something bigger than you and I.

For me, spring is synonymous with hope, resilience and savoring life. Where seeds and bulbs that lay hidden and invisible in the ground suddenly make show off their existence as jonquils, daffodils, hyacinths!  I draw strength and have renewed purpose as I am reminded of the Resurrection, of new life, new beginnings and hope.

I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in.

George Washington Carver

Wonderful thought of how nature deals with adversity. There is something that goes through every mind when we see that little hardy plant squeeze itself through a crack.

I like the thought of holding onto the potential of new growth when we are going through a winter season in our lives :)

I'd like to make that first photo a screen saver! Goodness knows, that image speaks louder than many a sermon.


Love this quote today, "Plants will grow wherever they can find a small crack of sunlight, a glimmer of hope. They are a symbol for resilience and perseverance in the face of adversity." So true.

Good one today. I actually needed to hear that today.
