Faith, hope, & love.

Three beautiful ideas follow us into each new year.  Awareness of God’s empowering love in us, through us, and for us causes us to notice and experience faith, hope, and love. Something happens and there they are like unexpected pop-up notifications in our lives. We witness them manifested in others. We respond to someone or to a situation with faith, hope, and love, sometimes without even having to think about it. These three are the elemental forces of spirit that abide after everything else we look forward to in 2018 is no more than a fading memory. Breathe them in. Swim in their flow. Notice.

Lord, thank you for everyday reminders that faith, hope, and love abide.
