Our life is full of brokenness -- broken relationships, broken promises, broken expectations.  How can we live with that brokenness without becoming bitter and resentful except by returning again and again to God's faithful presence in our lives. Henri Nouwen

The faithful love of the Lord never ends!     His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness;     his mercies begin afresh each morning. I say to myself, “The Lord is my inheritance;     therefore, I will hope in him!” Lamentations 3:22-24 NLT
