Sunday Favorites

  



Chari  at Happy to Design ( click her  button)      hosts this  very  fun theme each week  which I just discovered today.... and I have already had the most amazing time just perusing old posts  to   make my choice....   It  was  rather  dufficult to decide until I fell upon these older posts from August  3 years ago....   Then I knew this was the one for my maiden voyage into this theme... 
Amy, over at SIGN AND WONDERS is hosting this wonderful meme this morning! I am so pleased to join in with many others you can visit at her site.


This morning I am expectant! I am exultant, and filled with aniticipation!

I am expecting the best is yet to be. It sort of started simply with the following promise.

God's provision is so marvelous! His bounty is never ending! His promise to us to revealing of His nature and His love.. Then I ran across this hymn.

The Hymn of Promise

In the bulb there is a flower; in the seed, an apple tree;
In cocoons, a hidden promise: butterflies will soon be free!
In the cold and snow of winter there’s a spring that waits to be,
Unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see.
There’s a song in every silence,
seeking word and melody;
There’s a dawn in every darkness,
 bringing hope to you and me.
From the past will come the future;
what it holds, a mystery,
Unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see.
In our end is our beginning; in our time, infinity;
In our doubt there is believing; in our life, eternity,
In our death, a resurrection; at the last, a victory,
Unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see.



The words just touch me deeply on so many levels. To me it says it all. We have our hope in God alone for all things come from and through Him. No matter what we are facing, no matter what the future holds, we can rest in Jesus- His promises and fulfillment of them is complete, just, and unfailing!
