alive and well

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! By his great mercy he has given us a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,”  1 Peter 1:3

in the mother
who reassures her son
that everything will be fine
(even though he forgot
to turn on the oven after
putting the turkey on the rack);
in the teacher
who patiently goes over
the math problem
for the nth time with
the struggling student;
in the stranger who stops
by the side of the road
and waits with the stranded family
until the tow truck arrives,
hope is alive and well,
dancing all around us
