I never imagined
in those days filled with fears and tears and
aches so heavy it felt like my heart might crumble
that one day we would be here.
Here in this place where home feels warm and
things feel a little more right than they used to.
A reality I thought was too far gone
a dream that would forever be a dream
that felt senseless to even hope for.
But here we are
the goodness of God breathing life into
hope on its last breath.

(to my family, and to every weary heart. hope is not too far gone.)
Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.Romans 5:3-5 (NIV)
