Knock, Knock!

I love the time of the year from Thanksgiving to New Year’s. Lots of invitations sent and received to gather together and celebrate. Lots of time spent with friends and family. Then the holidays pass and January hits. Excitement dies down, and I find myself feeling lonely and sad – filling up my time with tedious “to do” lists.

You are the Beloved

Welcome, you are the Beloved. We don’t spent a ton of time hammering people over the head with information at Hope Street.

My Friend

"Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him."Isaiah 91: 1-2 NLT My dear Lord Jesus Christ you were the word then the word became flesh.

You are such a faithful and loyal friend

And the Answer is...

This is where I have noticed myself struggle over the years as I have begun to grow up and realize that not everything can be answered with a why. Which then leads me to ask why is that? Or why
