".. from my ragged heart to yours"

~**Ashes and HoPe!**~

Today is Ash Wednesday
A time for repentance
and also for

Here is a new piece
created with the
theme of
in mind.

And these words from
a favorite song ~
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.

Wishing you
as you enter this
Lenten Season!

When someone you love has just been given a few weeks to live unless a miracle
 occurs, the word HOPE takes on a whole new reality. Please continue to keep
Linda (follow her story by clicking on the link found in my side bar) in your prayers.
