You've often heard the term, "Hope springs eternal." I was thinking about that saying today and how true it really is.
Lately when I've been feeling discouraged, I will stop what I'm doing and just wait for a moment. If I can get in a quiet spot, I will wait and search deep within myself. Then I will think, "It is still there!"
The "it" is hope. I can literally feel it moving around inside my chest. It is almost like a translucent bubble that I can sense bouncing around inside of me.
From the outside, my problems are still there just as big as they ever were. My outward trials haven't went away. But inside my heart, I can feel hope floating and soaring- reassuring me that even though I haven't received an answer, my hope remains.

I've been wracking my brain this week for deep, spiritual truths, and I'm coming up with nothing. I'm not sure what that says about me. I really do enjoy writing about what God has been showing me. But it's been a slow week, I guess.
When in doubt, we can talk about fashion, right?
I recently ordered three of these jackets from Nordstrom. If you are wondering why, it is because of their awesome free return policy. I couldn't decide which color I liked the best, so my husband said to order all three and then decide. Here are the three I ordered.
This isn't a life altering decision, of course. But it was a really hard choice. I sort of liked them all! The red was so cute, but I couldn't be sure it would be versatile. The burgundy was so pretty, too. But in the end, I went with the last one above. They are all from Nordstrom. (nordstrom.com)
