Hope is a thing with feathers That perches in the soul; And sings the tune without words And never stops at all. - Emily Dickinson
It's about understanding that we are not in control and knowing that there is a mystery to this life and that things happen even though we don't always understand how to deal with them or why they've happened in the first place - sometimes we never do.
However, we do have a choice - we can go down or choose to struggle through with His help. I know that when I look around my life and take notice, there are always blessings if I can just remember to look out for them.
Once I had finished creating this watercolour painting, I realised I needed to remember this truth myself - maybe you do too, my friend.
