There's not a doubt that this cheerfully colored calendar page does NOT make me think of November. Perhaps some places look bright and cheery right about now, but not in my neck of the woods. It's turning into a brown gray dark world right about now.
"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing." ~ Romans 15:13
Maybe that is why this verse was chosen for November? HOPE is something I need to stick away in my heart right about now and when I look to God for hope He answers by filling me up with all His joy and peace. That certainly feels like an incredible bonus during a challenging time, especially as the daylight hours seem to be decreasing in leaps and bounds.
When life gets overwhelming, I just need to glance at the calendar to have my spirit cheered and reminded of His HOPE!
