On a cloudy, blustery day in early March, I passed a fire hydrant.
I saw some scribbling on it, graffiti, a four-letter word….
The wind was cold, it blew fierce in my uncovered ears. My scarf warmed my neck. I walked, pushing hard into the wind.
As I drew closer, I looked again at the scribbled word
Do you see it?
in an unexpected place
Ps. 33:20-22 We wait in hope for the Lord; he is our help and our shield. In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name. May your unfailing love rest upon us, O Lord, even as we put our hope in you.
Ps. 62:5 Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him.
Ps. 142:3 When my spirit grows faint within me, it is you who know my way.
Ps. 68:19 Praise be to the Lord, to God our Saviour, who daily bears our burdens.
