Rejoice


He is risen! Today at church we talked about hope. Through Jesus, who died for our sins, we have hope.

God has done so much in our lives in the last couple of years. If you have read our story, you know the miracles that we have experienced, and I will tell you that there is much more to God's blessings in our lives than what I've written here.

I wrote this post back while Blair was in the hospital, and I still love the verse I shared because we can have hope and be joyful in all circumstances -- when things are good or not so good.

Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. I Thessalonians 5:16-18

Throughout our trials, we have been blessed more than I can explain. For that I'm thankful. And I continue to have hope and look forward to God's working in our lives. All we have to do is believe.

Then Jesus told him, "You believe because you have seen me. Blessed are those who believe without seeing me." John 20:29

I'm no preacher -- this is probably not very organized, but it's from my heart!

You don't have to be a preacher to say something from the heart! And that's much better than a preacher sometimes, Ashley! I'm so glad you have such faith and hope, aren't you? There are many that don't.
Love,
Bonnie
