declares the Lord,
"plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
plans to give you a hope and a future."
To all the Mommas who had to endure an empty Easter basket this year:
I hope you remembered how much God loves you.
I hope you were able to smile through the tears.
I hope you could feel the embrace of God as He leads you down this path to know Him better.
I hope His grace enveloped you as you waited yet another day to see how God's glorious plan to prosper you will ultimately display His glory.
I hope you cried the tears, and filled the basket any way, and ate an extra chocolate Easter bunny like I did.
I hope you know that you are not alone in this battle of belief.
I hope you know that God is worthy of any sacrifice He calls His children to.
I hope you still have hope.
