Gaining Altitude — Growth Opportunities for the Week

Chaplain (Maj.) John M. Von Almen
412th TW chaplain

Even though I am currently enjoying sunny Southern California days, I am reminded of the saying, “April showers bring May flowers.” This phrase always reminds me that hope follows the storms of life. It may be difficult to see the hope beyond current hardships, so remember that there are agenciesavailable to assist.  Don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it.

Prayer theme
Help us to see through the storms of life to the hope that lies just beyond the hardships.
