We have this hope

This post may seem more Scattered Showers than Rays of Sunshine, but sometimes that’s just how this ol’ world is, right?

Today is my mom’s first birthday in Heaven. I’ve been dreading this day big time. I want to be able to call her, but I can’t. I want to buy her a goofy present like she always bought us, but I can’t. And even though I’m incredibly sad in this moment, I also have peace that surpasses all understanding.


Because we have this hope in Jesus Christ. We have this hope that today on her first birthday in Heaven she is happy and healthy. Today she is worshipping our King. Today she is celebrating like no other.

We have this hope that we will see her again. We are confident in that promise.

I hope you have that hope, too. The hope that pulls you through the sad days. The hope that produces joy unspeakable deep down within you even when life is incredibly hard.

If you need that kind of hope today, please message me.

“For God so loved the world that He sent His only son, that we would not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
