I'm amazed at how a kind word, an inspiring story, or even just a good walk under tall trees can lift me up out of brooding, sad thoughts. One afternoon, as I was going for one of my long walks under tall trees, I was thinking about how suddenly darkness can lift—even when it seems like it could go on forever. That's when I envisioned The Night Rabbit. It immediately made me smile—that shadow-black bunny, with a shimmering glow of hope around him. He represents all those wonderful thoughts, and beautiful scenes that can sneak up on you even as you were right in the middle of a brooding, sad thought. I believe God sends those hopeful ideas and that's why they're powerful. I love The Night Rabbit!
