Psalm 71:14 says, “I will always have hope in you,” (The New American Bible). Today is Easter Sunday. With this, God brings about new life and new hope.
Hope runs high as we prepare for this new Royals baseball season. “Come to Play” is their slogan to begin the season. Let’s hope that they play well and give us an enjoyable season.
