Monday August 31st, James 1: 17 Whatever is good and perfect comes to us from God above, who created all heaven's lights. Unlike them, he never changes or casts shifting shadows. 18 In his goodness he chose to make us his own children by giving us his true word. And we, out of all creation, became his choice possession.    Even in the midst of economic collapse and continued wars, people find hope.  It comes not from the things you can buy but rather the things you cannot buy.  At this time, as he is gracefully facing the end of his days, former President Jimmy Carter reminds us that Hope is a gift of God.  Hope rebuilds houses, lives and dreams.  Hope brings people back together and rebuilds relationships.  Hope surrounds each one of us with loving arms and then sends us out with our arms, as arms of God, to bring hope to others.  It is that hope, the hope that comes from God, which is good and perfect.  As God’s children, created in God’s image, our highest calling is to bring the hope of Christ with us as we reach out, serve, and incite miracles in this world.
