The shadow gets longer as the sun sets. This reminds us that life is short on earth, but eternal in heaven.

Hope Rising by Kim Meeder
Right from the Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch in Oregon, Kim Meeder has seen horses go where no one else can tread – stepping through the minefield of a broken child’s soul in a dance of trust that only God can understand. From a mistreated horse to an emotionally starved child and back again, a torrent of love washes away their barren places. Kim’s ranch is a place where this miracle happens over and over again. It is a place where the impossible flourishes, where dreams survive the inferno of reality – a place where hope rises.
By intentionally thanking God and others, bitterness and entitlement are replaced with joy and the humble realization of just how undeserving we really are. Derived from a popular Revive Our Hearts radio series, Choosing Gratitude: Your Journey to Joy challenges and equips the reader to live a life of intention. A life based on thankfulness – for the freedom Christ has provided and for the blessings of others.
