From Hope Springs Love


Why have you let the hardships put distance between you? Sitting on the same sofa, you’re light-years from each other. What happened?

How did she become an umbrella tucked in the closet only to be appreciated on rainy days? And sadly for you, he became as a throw pillow that decorated your life.

Are you going to toss away all the years you built together just because you’ve forgotten how to express love? Please think before you answer – how will your response affect the other?

Can you look at her? Can you look at him? Are you going to remain silent and let fear and stubbornness take authority over your lives? Is it worth leaving your precious marriage in ruins?


I heard a man pleading with my parents like that many years ago. Unfortunately, they didn’t listen. They didn’t make it.

I want to make it. I want to stay married to my beautiful wife forever and a day.

For our GOOD FRIDAY, my wife and I saw a movie without the kids. To her amazement I wanted to see ‘Hope Springs’.

“You don’t like romantic comedies.”

“I don’t, not really. But I love you and I think it might be funny.”

I won’t spoil the movie, but it was more than just amusing, it was truly a reminder that from hope springs love.

Uniqueness Isn’t Weakness


After an early morning shampoo you discover your hair has turned bright green. Many shampoos and rinses later, you face the fact that it’s permanent.

Do you go to work that morning? If you do, how would you deal with the stares and the constant question, “What happened to your hair?”

What about the snickering? Or the direct insults? Could you bear under such pressure?

Most adults would find it difficult to go through life with green hair. But why would life under green hair be so hard to manage?

Perspective. Other people’s perspective, that’s why.

For our GOOD FRIDAY this week, we were to watch a movie with our children, a movie that would inspire them to newer heights. The movie I picked was The Boy with Green Hair, made in 1948. In the movie a war orphan, after washing his hair, discovers he will have to spend the rest of his life with green hair. Ostracized and pressured to no end to cut off or dye his bright green hair, he runs away and collapses running through the woods. There he has a revelation in the form of poster war orphans who help him see the purpose of his sudden green hair.

After the movie I asked my son would he be embarrassed to sport bright green hair.


“Embarrassed? I already have the longest hair than all the guys in my school. If my hair was green too, I would be the coolest kid in school.”
