All I Have to Offer You is Hope

She appeared at my door

Tears streaming down her face

And, I said,

“All I have to offer you is hope and a hug.”


She appeared at my desk talking in circles

Faster than my brain could comprehend

And, I said,

“All I have to offer you is hope and a listening ear.”


He messaged me one day and it read,

“I don’t want to live any longer.”

And, I replied

“All I have to offer you is hope. Can you tell me more about how you are feeling?”


She came running to our door

Looking for food.

And, I said

“All I have to offer you is hope, some pretzels, and a capri sun.”


He called us on the phone one day and said,

“We have no place to live.”

And, we said

“All we have to offer you is hope, a pillow, and a blanket to keep you warm.”


He sent me a letter from behind bars that read

“I am sorry for the things that I have done.”

And, I said

“All I have to offer you is hope and a God that meets us at the door when we have come undone.”


“You see my dear, hope doesn’t come wrapped with a bow.

Rather it lifts us up and provides space for us to grow


In our faith and relationship with our Heavenly Father

Especially when we take a moment to love one another.


So, today my dear all I have to offer you is

A place to grow

A hug

A listening ear

A life

A bag of pretzels and a capri sun

A pillow and a blanket and

A God that meets you at the door when you have come undone.”


Ya'll have a beautiful day!


All My Love,


Jen
