Hope Is Everything

Expression of Hope

Expression of Hope

I read a lot of posts this weekend that expressed in one way or another the hope of Easter.

Here’s one from my friend John Dobbs that retweets a post by @LongBeachMH about family being all together more often, and talking about the hope of Heaven.  Knowing some about John’s life, his added amen to the post says volumes.

I recognize that the central hope in my own life rests in the resurrection.  This life is not the end.  It’s the preparation for what’s coming.  And this hope is indeed precious.  Everything else in life flows from it.

Tomorrow as I visit folks dealing with cancer, I am aware that while we will  pray for healing, that the ultimate hope we share lies in the resurrection.

I can’t imagine my life without the hope of resurrection.  I can’t imagine how I’d deal with the pain and suffering I see in patients’ lives, much less how they’d deal with it.

This Easter, I’m thankful.  And tomorrow I’ll be thankful again.  Because hope is everything.
