Peace, Hope & Love

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. – 1 Peter 1:3

It’s been a rough week. I was losing hope. I was focusing on myself. I was stressed. I was overwhelmed. I couldn’t see anything past the present second and  my present problems.

Luckily, God was listening. (Of course He was!) He has given me the most gorgeous, relaxing weekend I could have possibly asked for and put things back into perspective. I’ll spare you my sermon, but reflect on the verse above. We are NEW because of Him. We have HOPE because of Him. He is so merciful, and He has overcome the world.

I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. – John 16:33

Whatever you’re going through, take a step back. Allow the Holy Spirit to fill you with peace, hope & love.

My weekend was:

[a lazy saturday]

[closing a restaurant catching up with old friends]

[taking a hot hot bath, simply because I wanted to]

[celebrating a dear friend’s birthday]

[expanding my mind reading intelligent articles in Wired]

[leaving the doors and windows wide open]

[a nice walk with my mom]

[celebrating the risen Christ with family]

[a terrific brunch with a terrific view]

[an afternoon not bound by plans]

[baking an oreo brownie surprise – recipe to come tomorrow!]

[mentally prepping for the season finale of The Walking Dead]

On that note, you should probably go back and read my blog How To Survive a Zombie Apocalypse in honor of tonight’s episode. Also, just in case it happens sooner than you expected.
