Signs of Hope-March 24, 2020

03.23.20 | by Suzanne Bernet

    Round about this time of year, the GA Food Shelf Garden folks are starting plants by seed in their homes. The photo you see here (courtesy of one of our garden leaders) is a wonderful reminder that spring is on the way! In fact, less than two weeks ago (although now it seems like much, much longer than that!) some garden leaders gathered at the parish to talk about plans for the coming growing season.

    As I sit here now, the world spinning around us and more than a little doubt gnawing away, it helps to remember that creation is still doing what creation does -- waiting for just the right time to break through. Hope springs eternal -- it's much more than a cliche these days. As I work on staying centered in a world that seems determined to resist balance, I am using the following daily questions as part of my morning reflection. I share them with all of you in hope that they will help you, as well.

    • What am I grateful for today?
    • Who am I connecting with or checking in on today?
    • What expectations of "normal" am I letting go of today?
    • How am I getting outside today?
    • How am I moving my body today?
    • What beauty can I either create, cultivate or allow into my life today?

    My prayer for each of you is that you can find hope in the little things while we work and wait for the big things to shift. Blessings on your day.
