There is Hope

It is a challenge to get through some days.

To get ready for work after long nights with my wee one. 
To stay positive when exhaustion takes over.
To get my five-year old students to do anything productive on a snow day.
To remember AND meet deadlines.
To cook dinner after a full day of work.
To find time to update a blog aha
To choose joy in the mundane tasks of each day.

...and the list goes on...

BUT there is Hope.
"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,"
-1 Peter 1:3

In Jesus, there is living hope. 
Let's be anchored to that. 
Let's remember that He is good.
He is gracious and loving.
He meets us where we are.
He comforts.
He provides and sustains. 
He mends and restores.

Let's choose Hope friends
And if even that feels too difficult for your heart and mind right now, choose to simply rest; 
and just trust that God is faithful to meet you in that.

On another note:
Making joy out of the mundane...
Reading my students' writing can be a challenge for me at times.
I want to share that challenge, and the joy that it brings, with you!
See the picture below.
