dvent – Season of Hope

“You promised!” my children protest.

How did “I’ll think about it” become a promise?  How did the merest suggestion that I would consider their request take on the trappings of an oath?  The answer eludes me.  To them, a suggestion is as good as a promise.  They believe in that promise, and their faith is unshakable.

Therein lies their hope.

Know that the Lord does wonders for his faithful one;

the Lord will hear me when I call upon him. Psalm 4:4
