Hope Perseveres

But I will Hope continually, and will

yet praise thee more and more.

Psalm 71:14

Amen, His praise will be on my lips continually. Bless you dear one.

Absolutely beautiful, Mary. I love this picture and what it represents. God can grow anything anywhere. I love the words of hoping continually and praising more and more. Amen.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. The words really touched me. I've come over here tonight and read some of your entries.

It blesses me to see you have HOPE! Life is tough sometimes, but the Bible says we will have trials.

I'm so sorry for your losses. But we can be happy that we will see our loved ones again.

We lost our Dad to cancer in 2000. Now we will walk with my sister on her journey. We place our Hope in God. He will not fail us.

Thank you again for leaving me a comment. You have truly blessed me today!

Wonderful. A picture and a scripture and it can be so profound. Have a great day.

Indeed it does...even in the midst of lima bean cakes! What were you thinking?

Thanks, Mary, for letting us in on a little more about yourself. You have a rich storehouse of info from which to pull. Thanks, also, for leaving a comment on Nick's posting. He means the world to me. He's my heart.

Hi Mary,
What a beautiful picture and without hope where would we be today. I know hope is with me in the valleys, and during my struggles as I make my way up. Hope keeps looking up.

Mary, this is SO beautiful! What a perfect representation of that scripture! This would make a perfect Word-Filled Wednesday post! (If you're not familiar, it's simply sharing a scripture illustrated by a photograph). If you're interested in linking so that others can see, go to and add your name to Mr. Linky anytime today.

Blessings, my friend!

Thanks for your comment and encouragement. I'm glad you stopped by!

I'll get the Snoopy pics up as soon as I can. I'm still having trouble getting the hang of all this. But you can check in a couple of days.

God bless!

To answer your question about "Echo Lafawn", I think I remember my Mom telling me she just dreamt up the name one day and just loved it...(can't imagine what inspired that!) I'm just thankful...(too funny!)

(a very happy to be) "Tracy" = )
