Jeremiah 29:11. The verse finished loading. She read it slowly. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
A future? What kind of a future was there for her as long as she stayed in Alaska? A future away from her family, the only ones who had ever really loved her. A future in Glennallen, a town with absolutely nothing going for it except for the fact that it was remote and catered to tourists in the summer. A future working at the daycare until she lost every ounce of patience with the children and was forced to quit. And then what? Getting a job at Puck’s grocery store? Bagging canned goods and stocking shelves the rest of her life?
Hope and a future. Until tonight, Lacy hadn’t really allowed herself to hope for anything besides a mild winter. She glanced at the verse on her screen once more. “For I know the plans I have for you.”
Well, at least somebody did, she thought as she flipped off her phone.
