Sunday Post / Thirstday #16: Hope

Chinese around the World celebrate the Lunar New Year, or affectionately referred to as the Spring Festival in China. A time where malls, shops & even streets are elaborately decorated with red & gold decorations. A hope of prosperity & wealth, signified by the colour gold. I’d like to think of red being the colour of life, vitality & strength.

Am looking forward to the new year, which is anticipated to bring new life, new perspectives, new zest. Spring offers a newness, a throwing away of the old. Complete Make-over.

As African Violets are planted in anticipation of flowering, I thirst for an unceasing hope for life’s best, never allowing life to wear down my zest for the Almighty’s abundant life!
