As I came in from my walk today I said to Andrew, “I feel as if I’m about to turn over a new leaf. But I have to be careful to turn it over slowly.”
He says to me, “Uh huh, or else you’ll fall off your lilly pad.”
That’s about right.
Then he added, “So you’re worried about turnover, huh?”
Yep, I’m very worried about turnover. No, not really. Just thinking about things and trying not to do what I always do when my hope starts to climb–that is, I take off running and either trip over myself or I nose dive when the slightest wind blows. So slow. Slow sounds good. Maybe I’m finally catching on. There is hope for me yet.
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.”Romans 15:13 (ESV)
