During the past few weeks I've been reading a book that is resonating and rocking the foundation of my faith. It's called "The Prodigal God" by Timothy Keller. The message in this book dovetails so beautifully with what I wrote of our daughter, Hope, and I felt nudged to share just a small portion of it with you here:
"Jesus, unlike the founder of any other major faith, holds out hope for ordinary human life. Our future is not an ethereal, impersonal form of consciousness. We will not float through the air, but rather will eat, embrace, sing, laugh, and dance in the kingdom of God, in degrees of power, glory, and joy that we can't at present imagine.
Jesus will make the world our perfect home again. We will no longer by living "east of Eden", always wandering and never arriving. We will come, and the father will meet us and embrace us, and we will be brought into the feast."

Here's to bright (and actual!) hope for tomorrow, my friend. May today you experience a sense that truly, the best is yet to come.
