Hope Floats

Hope must be the word of the year.  Every turn I take I’m seeing the word hope.  Even in this shot I took last week I took of a butterfly behind our house.  For native American (indigenous peoples) the yellow butterfly represents hope.  My wife Kitty put in this butterfly bush and now I guess I know why we have one.

 


Hope Abounds

  • I’ve recently been talking to groups called Bridges of Hope and Hands of Hope
  • Our first (beta) client for MissionKonnect was Homes of Hope
  • Our first pay client (and long time charity my family supports) Nehemiah Vision Ministries was founded by Pastor Esperandieu Pierre.  Esperandieu means “hope in God”
  • One of the boards I’m on, Mary Rigg Neighborhood Center, has a new tag line:  Mary Rigg provides “Help and Hope.
  • Their Get Involved page is now labelled “Where Hope Happens”
  • Mary Rigg’s annual gala is now thusly named Help and Hope
  • And the butterfly

Hope is a great word and yet what so many lack.  There is great work being done by these organizations above to show that their is hope.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Spirit, you may abound in hope.
