Imagine having no hope or faith…

Imagine...
I’ve just returned from a sunless morning in the garden; alone with my thoughts and ideas while picking the fruits of my labors. A fine mist of rain sprinkling down on me giving me comfort in my wandering mind.
Thoughts of children…

Children who just want to be loved and needed; who want a good home, to be fed, and taught. Custody battles are drawn, lines have been crossed, and the war between parents has begun. But you being to wonder…who really wants what is best for this small child?  One parent’s reason is the other’s quarrel. Where does the little one stand in all this controversy? It’s only for the judgment of one man to determine.
More thoughts of children…
Mothers who have babies and do not want them; and want-to-be mothers who cannot have babies. I know there is a reason for everything but it sure is hard to understand sometimes.
A young woman’s yearning along with her husband for a child. Complications that are hard to understand are being dealt with emotionally, medically, and financially. All with the question in the back of their minds “How anyone could not want their own child and be willing to destroy it!”  I don’t think God even understands that. He does however understand the desire in ones heart for a child. A heart that is hungry and aching to love and nourish.
He will provide.
…As the mist begins to get heavier and my hair begins to take on a life of its own; I quickly finish my gathering. With a basket full of peas, tomatoes, and okra; I head to the house...still full of questions and wonder in my mind but also with a peace that everything will transpire like it should, and be how its meant to be.......
Through hope, faith, and many prayers; I can’t imagine it any other way.
Saying My ABC’s
Imagine is for “I”
Imagine a life where hope, peace, and love abound, through faith in a higher spirit.
