Snowballs in Summer: a weather report of faith -from AnnVoskamp's {awakened eye}


   This picture brought me a  great big 'ole smile that you just couldn't wipe away. Ann's words, so simple and true through her Snowballs in Summer Post: a weather report of faith. I was first intrigued by the "snowball" pictures because it reminds me of a wonderful time in my child hood of playing barefoot in the grass and dirt next to my grandmothers overgrown blue "snowball" bush. I love how Ann saw these as a "clutch of fragile hopes", so pure and white. This just warms my soul today.
  Last night I was hit with a phrase "It will happen, it will happen, it will happen." I have a hopeful spirit today, a big 'ole grin kinda hope. It's so good to hear a promising weather report of faith today!

I know what she feels when she says...

Waiting for the impossible.

It's hot.

And there are snowballs in summer.

With man this is impossible, but not with God;

all things are possible with God.

~Mark 10:27

  1. Jen,

    Thank you for visiting my blog :) I hopped on over, as I was compelled to share a HUG, as this journey is not easy, but one we edure with FAITH and great HOPE. Through "him" all things are possible. I love that we both share that connection.

    I read your story, *tears*, as I relate to "this journey" on so many levels. I added our names to your prayer blog :) Thank you for the invite.

    Know that I will be lifting you up in prayer. I have great HOPE for your future. Hang in there with the Clomid, as it can be challenging.

    And, may your Fairytale come true....

    Much Love
