I don’t really know how I practice hope, but I always have, on a cellular level. Perhaps my infant baptism bathed me in the Spirit of God which, to my understanding, is HOPE. I suspect it came even earlier. Even though I was conceived in trauma, I was ALSO conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit—and therefore I know I was ALSO conceived in love. I have always carried hope in my soul. I don’t know HOW, but I know that I DO. And I am forever grateful for that HOPE.

Marcia - thank you for sharing. Wow. Beautiful how you have framed this honoring both the trauma and pain but also the grace and power of God through this. Thank you.
