Hi Ali, I am a regular reader of your blog and I am always inspired by what you share. Thank you for sharing so beautifully about hope - it was a timely reminder that we depend on an amazing God. May He continue to fill you with His hope as you work as His hands and His feet.

Romans 5: 2b-5 And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.

Ali!! I didn't know you had a well-read blog. I read another blog and someone commenting referred us to yours. Great to be able to read about your work.

Your words encourage me and help me to apply God's truth in my little struggles. God bless you as you minister love and hope and healing in His name to your little ones and to those of us who read your inspiring words.

This post brought tears to my eyes AGAIN today.
My heart is held in the hands that threw stars across the night sky. My heart is hidden beneath the shadow of wings that reach from eternity to eternity. My heart is mended by the Carpenter, pieced back together with the same nails that pinned Him between heaven and earth.
