After my last post, it has caused me to be more hopeful with my email inbox. So many times in the busyness of each day, I see my emails as a bother or an interruption. I constantly remind myself to slow down and pay attention. Hopeful is an exciting way to live life.
I am reminded of a personal Christmas story: One year I received a ping pong ball in my stocking. I thought it was odd until I realized that a new ping pong table was in the garage! The next year I received a water ski vest, in my hopefulness I went to the garage to look for a boat! (It was not there)
Hopeful living gives each day a new step and a new potential from the normal everyday cycle of work. Emails can certainly be a bother, but sometimes nuggets of ideas, imagination and hopefulness just might be the gift God intends for you to receive.
Think about it!
