  1. Good one!!! My husband learned his heart is “sick” and that he must avoid stress along with a radical lifestyle change. No more grand expectations for him!!

  2. “but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.” Proverbs 13:12b. So I’m going to keep hoping for grand things, and when my heart is sick over hope deferred, then I turn my hope to Jesus, who is with me always. 😉

  3. And perhaps focus instead on gratitude for the joy right before us.
