Each day brings more HOPE. As I get better, physically and emotionally, HOPE is stronger. I am so thankful for what the Lord does through His healing and His strong presence in my life.
But I will hope continually
and will praise You more and more.
The more I praise the Lord, the more my HOPE flows. Focusing on the Lord, and not myself, is the key. This isn't easy - I don't want to pretend it it! When I'm hurting, it's really hard not to focus on that pain or that problem. It's hard not to feel depressed or sad, but I know that I have to stop this self-destructive behavior because it's like a bottomless pit where there is no HOPE!
I hope you'll focus on the Lord, too, when you're feeling hopeless because through Him, there is HOPE!!!
Here's a picture of sweet Cookie. She is such a dear and she gives me so much love. Between Mitzi and Cookie, I'm swamped in unconditional poodle love! :)
Many blessings and lots of poodle hugs - Julie
