“O Israel, hope in the Lord from this time forth and forevermore.”  
Psalm 131:3 English Standard Version

Oregon Gardens, Silverton, Oregon

Oregon Gardens, Silverton, Oregon

As long as the Oregon Gardens is in business (which hopefully will be for some time) these bronze statues of a boy and girl will endure.  These figures grabbed my attention as I took more pics of them from various angles.  Yet, the reality is that they may not stay here forever

As long as this world spins, there will be hope even though the things of life will disappear.  The hope we have in Christ transcends the uncertainty of worldly hope.  “I hope it snows tomorrow.”  “I hope I can sleep tonight.”  “I hope the creek don’t rise.”  There is an air of uncertainty in each of these statements.

There is no air of uncertainty in the statement that Jesus Christ is going to return, that he is going to raise the dead, and that all things will be placed under his feet.  This is our hope, and as long as the community of God’s people exists in the here-and-now, there will be this unwavering hope in God’s promised future.
